Since retiring, my life has become a cross of a northern gentleman and a teenager. For instance, yesterday, an early morning 35 mile bike ride with friends, preceded cutting the front lawn and making a trip to the local cemetery to pick up rocks from the debris pile to use for our garden border.
Sue wanted to go out to dinner, but I had a meeting with the Buzzards Bay Coalition to register, and get a CORI application to be a bike guide. I had time before leaving to order a double lobstah roll and a cup of chowder from a local place to satisfy Sue’s addiction.
The group at the Buzzards Bay meeting was a really diverse group of volunteers, signed up to lead the events scheduled for this summer. The Bay Swim, paddle boarding, fishing, kayaking, bike rides, counting of the spawning herring, beachcombing, birding, boating and geocaching to name a few.
One of the most popular bike rides I lead is the “Cape Cod Canal. Both Sides and Both Bridges” is in jeopardy because the sidewalk crossing the Bourne Bridge is under repair.
Below is 35 miles with the Fall River Bike gang.

Sounds like you had a great day. Lobster roll from Whaler’s Tavern?
You’ll make an excellent bicycle tour guide 🙂 Lots of experience and video to prove it.
Is Buzzards Bay Coalition altering the Watershed Ride because of the bridge construction?

So many ways to have fun! How did you find time to work? Or have you always been a gentleman of leisure?
My first job I was 11 years old working on a milk truck. The driver picked me up at 4:30 AM and brought me home in time to catch the bus to school. I retired from my corporate job in 2010. That was enough work for me.
