today during my break from work i rented a bike and rode the perimeter of stanley park. the path along the seawall winds over five miles along the water. it was wonderful...to feel the air, to be outside of the convention center for an hour, to not be in my work shoes, to see this incredible green space, to get some exercise, and to explore around vancouver.
i saw a few people on tandem bikes and smiled thinking that o would resist renting one of those, but if we did rent one we'd have the silliest time. i thought of o and hobbes at many points during my ride.
it is amazing how much of an energy boost i got from my cruise around the park.
