Coffeeneuring Ride 2, Beach Day

 A clam's perspective

Sunshiney day in Nahant, and a 5 mile ride down the Nahant Beach walkway -- flat and easy. I finally saw an orthopedic doctor to address the knee and foot injuries last week, (I know... it's about time), and had an MRI on my knee last Wednesday to see what's going on. I won't learn the results until tomorrow. Unfortunately, my foot injury is still unresolved as it wasn't the orthopedist's specialty -- I need to see a podiatrist -- but an X-Ray ruled out a fracture. Unfortunately, I can't see the podiatrist for another few weeks.

So it's easy riding for a little while until I know what's going on. Today was an amazing summer-like day and a beach ride was a nice change of pace. I grabbed an iced coffee from the Dunkin' at the end of the causeway and went back to the beach to watch the surf and seagulls. Just what I needed today.
