The recreational wheels fell off this past weekend. An odd work schedule made for not much fun.
I needed to depart for Portland about noon on Saturday. I had to be at a certain place ready to work at 4 PM and need to complete this work by 8 PM. I did the work and then headed to Widmer Brewing brew pub for some grub, a beer, and the drive back to here.
When I was just on the South edge of Tacoma on I-5, there was a collision ahead that shut down three of four lanes. Traffic was thick-ish and squeezed into that one lane. It took me just over one hour to move two miles.
Since I was home late I slept in on Sunday. I awoke to the sound to a pretty steady rain. Sunday became "prep for the week" and nap day. I guess every weekend can't be fun.
But, I'm going to do my best to make next weekend fun. Keeping one eye on the weather, I plan to have the vehicle locked and loaded with gear. Once work is done for the week, I plan to be off to somewhere.
My choices are heading to the woods to camp, mountain biking some trails, or I was thinking a hybrid trip to Port Townsend. If I tossed a bike on the vehicle and made my way to Port Townsend, I could make a stop at Pygmy Boats to check out their kayak models. Then, I could head for Coupeville and Ebey State Park area for some mountain biking coupled with camping.
Work on weekends is extremely rare for me. Though I enjoy my job, I also enjoy my fun time. I'm looking forward to getting back to the fun this coming weekend.
