Coffeeneuring Ride 2: Make hay while the sun shines

Pumpkin spice latte and oatmeal cookie, Plus Café

Coffeeneuring rules stipulate a maximum of two rides per week -- and as my week began on Monday this year, today's ride fell during week one. Usually I only manage one coffee ride per week during the 7 week coffeeneuring stretch, but with bad weather hitting us for most of the coming week, I headed out today while the sun was shining.

I took the trail downtown and visited a new coffee shop, Plus Café, that opened in January, directly across from the popular Java Sun. It had a sweet patio and plenty of seating, and I loved the European vibe. The coffee was great, too! I will definitely revisit.  

One of four boats I watched haul out for the season

Heading home, I stayed on Atlantic Ave rather than return to the trail, and detoured over to the beach. The sky was brilliant blue and the harbor busy for October! With heavy storms arriving mid week, and the boating season largely over, it was a great day for folks to haul out boats. Busy, busy!

This is the best time of year.
