It is Saturday, October 29th, 2:56pm, and this morning I completed my first successful coffeeneuring ride. Coffeeneuring wasn't the main objective of my ride; I was riding to a local roaster to pick up some beans. But I thought, well, I'm going to where there is coffee, and since I'll be there, why don't I have a cup of coffee?
I started out in the morning to weather like this:
Fortunately, the weather changed by the time I reached the coffee shop (about four miles away). I didn't get a picture of just the sky for this one, but you get the idea. I did get rained on when I was riding, but not enough to be really discouraging.
And at last, I fulfill my goal to be a coffeeneur (is that a word?) by taking this picture of a cup of coffee and a slice of banana bread:
The coffee was good (as it should be, coming from the roaster). The banana bread was wonderful.
I had a great ride home. And when I got home, my wife had done this in the garden:
I really like the way this is put together.
And that was today's coffeeneuring. Even though I had to remind myself to take pictures, I enjoyed the ride and the process. Possibly I'll take part in the challenge next year.
