1) Do not go on an 8 mile bike race on the beach after having a 24 hour bug and eating only a bag of apples in the past 24 hours. It does not make for an enjoyable ride nor a good time.
2) When I leave home and forget my work cell, TURN AROUND. Today was only 1 of 2 days down here I have ever forgotten it and there were 7 voicemails when I got home. Argh.
3) Driving along I-5 heading south from Irvine, CA is lovely - especially by the ocean. I timed it just right and the hot air balloons were just being inflated near del Mar.
