I headed out early afternoon with my husband for a leisurely pedal, one of those amazing windless days that seems to good to be true. We meandered, checking out a couple neighborhoods and homes for sale. The foliage along the waterfront trail blazed in golds, oranges, and reds - peak color - so I reveled beneath the brilliant canopy.
So it was no surprise that the coffeeneuring wind started blowing as we neared the appointed spot: the cement dock at Starr Farm Beach, a private beach community where my husband's family has a summer camp. My husband came up with what I thought was a brilliant idea: coffeeneuring on the end of the dock. I imagined relaxing in my chair with water all around!

However, with the increasing chilly north breeze we resorted to plan B, using the shelter of the dock for stove set up. I was growing colder, unfortunately so cold that I left my helmet on. I realized with the weather taking a turn I had to come better prepared next time. I needed my down jacket. As soon as I was done we packed up and left.

Observation, Bike Friendliness: This is a private beach community where my husband's family owns a camp, so we had free reign to pick the best beach spot. I need to wear warmer clothing the next time I venture out.
