Great weekend

The weather was stunningly beautiful with highs of only 70, a cool breeze and clear skies.  I started off with a morning ride at Glacier Ridge (PDF map) where I finally was able to get in the entire track (including all the black diamonds).  I was pretty slow, it took me nearly two hours but I stopped a lot and was taking it easy so I wouldn't be too tired to tackle the next black diamond.  For lunch I took the family up to Port Jeff which was having a "Green Fest". We picked up some wraps at the Tiger Lily Cafe on High St.  I've always wanted a house right on High Street - one of those old 1850s era shipbuilder homes.  We walked down to the park to eat at one of the picnic tables by the bay, then we played in a drum circle for a while and caught a little of a jam band (Chris Fury) which was awesome. I had promised to make up for my solitary ride by taking my youngest out on Father's Day so we headed over to Cathedral and rode for about an hour.  I introduced a few new sections of trail, but mostly we cruised around on the roads.  The afternoon was dominated by an outdoor Warhammer Fantasy Battle pitching my Dwarves against my eldest's fledgling Skeleton army, followed by a barbeque with shrimp and kabobs.  Made only a short call up to dad since I was mid battle - bqueing, but I'm sure will make up for it soon.
