Last night, my whole finished post text file went bye-bye due to a machine freeze-up.
The Cape has been blessed with another bonus week of hot, dry, weather in time for my Day Off. The ocean water here is still 70F degrees. Yesterday, I finally rode my almost new, shiny bike to the beach at the end of my road.
I didn't have any pressing store needs, so I decided errands could wait until after the Library/blog trip this week. I'm still trying to fix the chain guide / gear switcher to work right since the tire tubes were replaced.
Haven't found the best, comfortable, distance spot for the chain yet.
Back in The Day I used to have a thrown together from spare parts, Raleigh one-speed to ride around the city. I lent it to a friend to get home one night, n they left it under a snow-bank all winter until it rusted beyond repair. It had no frills but was simple to fix, n easy to ride. I'll figure out the newer contraption sometime soon, hopefully.
The card reader used to transfer pics to the computer (so I can play with images) decided to go on the fritz, n I spent awhile testing connectors, jiggling parts, n contorting my fingers holding things so the machine would register it, while also mouse clicking, to at last upload What I snapped recently. After that I should've restarted but kept going- n all I did after got lost, probably due to all the dropped card reader connections that had accidentally occurred.
Guess I needed to keep tweaking what I was doing more. So you're getting the condensed version this time.
Top two altered pics from crops of the (unseen) altered, powerboat shot. Bottom three are the same pic of two sailors in a catamaran. All taken Weds.
What have you put off all summer you wish you hadn't?
