Can't Help but Smile

Have you ever had one of those experiences when you just can't help but smile?  At the suggestion of some of my friends, Brian and I took some time away from business on a business trip and drove out to Santa Monica, California.  This is one of those iconic places that I have heard about all my life and decided the time was right to judge its charm for myself.

It is beautiful in a simplistic sort of way.  It wasn't crowded.  And the bikes were calling to us.  Thankfully it is true that once you learn to ride a bike, it always comes back to you.  Brian figured he hadn't been on a bike since his mission days but being a good sport was up for the challenge.

How liberating!  I felt like a kid again!  It was something I will always remember.  A very good day.

Does this mean that sometime in the future you and Brian might to purchase a bike and go riding with Erica and me? :-)
