July4 2007

I wanted to see if I could find a better place to start.  I went north to Bodega Bay.  I talked to fishermen.  They said the wind usually calms down at night. Then it is very calm by morning.  This was a good place to start.

I rode my bike to Bodega Bay on July 2.  Then I drove with my friends, Vanya and Eve, to Olema.

On the way, we passed the ocean and the waters were calm.  There were no strong winds at all.  I said, “Darn, I could have set off right now.”  But I had driven a car instead of riding my bike.  My whole trip has to be human powered, so I moved on to dinner. 

My friend brought me my bike later in the day. I rode back to Bodega Bay.  The weather sure did change!  Dark clouds were in the sky.

Next week, the weather looks better.  I plan on setting off from Bodega Bay. I rode my bike here.
