Weather, Festivals, and Bikes


The windy weather kept me from riding my bike yesterday. It was a good thing since I decided to investigate the weird breaking sound I heard during my ride on Thursday and discovered two broken spokes on my back tire. I guess I should not be jumping off curbs, especially high curbs. I took the wheel to the bike shop and the broken spokes were replaced and the wheel straightened for $40--a good investment. Too bad that it is raining today and I won't be riding.

During the afternoon, Chris and I went to the Jupiter Jubilee. It was a good diversion and the price was right--free! We ran into a problem with the transport service from the parking lot to the jubilee--they would not allow Finnegan to ride the bus with us. So we walked the six or so blocks to the Jubilee and had a great time enjoying the sights and sounds. We had planned on getting lunch at the food trucks, but once we were at the jubilee, and having had food truck for for dinner on Friday evening, we passed on the food and enjoyed a wonderful time just being out of the house on a gloomy and windy day. 

This is one of the best times of the year in South Florida. There are festivals and activities almost every weekend. Even when the weather is less than perfect and the beach is not a good option, there is something to enjoy.
