Pedal Around the Bay

On Saturday The Goddess turned 42.
For her birthday, she got a new tattoo.


While the tattoo artist needled away,
I pedaled around Humboldt Bay.


In Manila I came across a Great White.
It was quite a fright.


From the Samoa Bridge, I watched godwits using their long beaks
to dig for tasty treats.


The architect of this structure did his best
to create a building that looks like two breasts.


On Old Arcata Road I felt a little bolder
riding on a new, smooth shoulder.


I admired the Lanphere Dunes
while whistling some familiar tunes.


Then it was time for some cocktails and a shot or two
as we all toasted Kim's new tattoo.

Happy birthday Kim.
Nice tat! You went out on a limb.

And, yeah, we used to call that building the 38 double D. Everybody knew where you meant. Over the years it's been a realtors office, a video rental place and a hair styling salon.

Very pretty tattoo. Happy Birthday to Kimmy!

The 38 double D...funny. My friend who used to live in Myrtletown called it Tits Video back when it was a video rental place.

I bought my first VCR there back in the early 80s. It was a Beta machine.
