Last night Vancouver Island took a beating from a storm. We had high winds, rain and then hail. It was hailing so hard it sounded like someone was throwing rocks on the roof. At one point we looked out and it was bouncing back off the pavement and the lawn was actually white. The high winds continued through the night and it was a frosty morning. I waited for it to warm up and then decided I would hop on Lucy because it was sunny and my day off. My new gear rocks my world and I am toasty warm in it. I headed out my favorite route West Saanich road out to the Peninsula. I decided to treat myself to lunch at the 3rd Avenue Cafe, it was fabulous! Had a cup or two of the demon bean and had the 3rd Avenue burger. After that I set off for home, but made a detour and buzzed down to Island View beach. It was pretty windy and the remnants from the storm could be seen, it had tossed up a piles of logs on the walk way. I had a wonderful ride and I have to say motorcycling is definitely a zen thing, calms the spirit, releases endorphins and just plain fun.
