Ingredients for a perfect holiday weekend

Sun-topped ferris wheels.

My daughter has the right idea.

Except I'd like to do my cruisin' on this smoking 1928 bike (found on Craigslist).

Toss in a couple good reads and some munchies into this "double bike pannier" (sold at CycleStyle in Australia, found via The Design Files).

Or maybe this one. I can't decide!

All geared up, it's time now to head over to one of my favorite places.

Santa Monica Beach in Southern California, in a photo I took on a Veteran's Day weekend when a group of volunteers placed white crosses in the sand to honor those who have died in the Iraqi war. A fitting picture for this weekend.

I hope you have a restful and inspiring weekend.

That vintage bike it is smoking hot, I used to have a blue Schwinn bike very similar to the one pictured, ohhh, how much I miss it...!!!

Have a great long weekend. ;-)

Dear Minnie, just by looking at your pictures (I love your little one on the wheels!) are enough to dream for a wonderful summer day.
We (again) had snow this weekend but I know it will get better soon.
I would love to find a bike like you did, and about the bike pannier? I love them both, but the pink is sooooo Tropical!!!
Have a weekend filled with sunshine inside and out!

Thanks for the shoutout for CycleStyle - we're thrilled you found us all the way from California!

Did you decide whether you like the Ranita panniers or Blue Peony better? :)

Miss CycleStyle, I love the Ranita pannier. I think pink is much more my color. Thank you for stopping by.
