I dreamed of uploading  some pictures of the biking adventures I have often, and the new eyes I carry with me every time  (and my Nikon D5000 camera), I start my rides at Liberty Park In the city of Cerritos, and take the San Gabriel River Bike Road, to Pacific Coast Hwy, through Seal Beach, Bolsa Chica, and access the bike road along the beach, thru Sunset Beach, Huntington Beach, rest at the Santa Ana River Mouth, to the bench on the foot of the beach. I rest there, take pictures, and return to Liberty Park:  A perfect place to cause some wear to my running shoes on their 334 yds. track,  brisk walking and jogging for an hour or so (about 4 miles).

A lot of this blog was built around the unforgettable moment spent in these memorable places.

I never experienced before the expression of pure joy, bliss, childlike happiness, on the faces of the  people I come across, like while being part of this special moments, on the bike road.
I hope you too enjoy the healthy physical activities, as much as blogging… I try to balance the two: May be that’s why I blog about my outdoors escapades.

One more thing: Teach your children to find joy, refuge, solace under the open skies, by taking them with you, engaging them into your activities at the earliest age. One day you may see on their faces the childlike expression of joy, like those I was mentioning earlier. Give them the tools to make themselves busy in the most self rewarding manner. I see people roller-skating, skate-boarding, biking, running (for 1-50 K), surf-boarding, swimming, entertaining pets, having pets entertain them, entertaining each other, and only rarely, once in a blue moon, someone smoking: Smoker in California are now an endangered species. Nothing wrong with that.

My point is: Get out there and find the fun in it – NO EXCUSES!

A wonderful post, with so much artistic atmosphere, Rome, and the Oratorio del Gonfalone.
