Stopping by Red Steps while looping through town.
One of my favorite memories as a kid is of swimming from my grandfather's boat, moored off Commercial Street Wharf, to the swimming float at the bottom of Red Steps. My cousins and I could always find the dock because of the red steps.
Our breakfast ride stayed local today, with breakfast at the Omelette Headquarters in Beverly and a ride through Salem Willows and Marblehead. Just 22 miles or so... a perfect day to go slow.
