Afternoon Bike Ride


It was a perfect spring day for an afternoon bike ride. The scenery reminded us of something out of a Beatrix Potter book. The handmade crocheted messenger bag that is cascading out of the wicker basket is lined with bunny illustration material. We purchased custard-filled baked goods and handcrafted coffee from our favorite local shops. As we sipped an Ethiopian brew, we discussed the simple pleasures of life. wpid-20150331_162300.jpg

These pictures were taken at one of our favorite parks where ducks and geese roam freely. They kindly approached us as we sat on a bench underneath a rustling tree. Potter’s story about Jemima Puddle-Duck almost came to life with these animated creatures. We reminisced about these darling tales that we read to each other out of pocket-sized books as children. Life, indeed, can be like a story. Let’s find daily beauty in the small things and never stop exploring.


Panama 66


Thomas Jefferson declared in 1824 that coffee is “the favorite drink of the civilized world.” It’s hard to resist the charm of this delicious beverage. It offers a full-bodied experience with the array of brews. Balboa Park San Diego provides a variety of museums and cultural experiences. At the San Diego Museum of Art, their restaurant Panama 66 offers many delicious options. We opted for some homemade banana bread and Dark Horse French Pressed coffee. The first sip of coffee had a bold, crisp taste. We recommend this experience for a coffee aficionado. The outdoor seating gave a great view of the sunset and access to sweet-sounding bells ringing in the short distance. It’s truly the Cultural Heart of San Diego.
