I just wrapped up the training camp with an 8 mile run in the country and now it's time to pack up and head out.  It seems like we just got here and now it's already time to leave.  [Sigh]  I love it here; I wish I didn't have to go back!

This is my third visit and this trip has been more fruitful than my previous visits and as long as the Ironman California rumor continues to be a rumor, I will revisit this location again next year.

We saw this owl as we were coming back from dinner.  I thought we scared him off because he took flight soon after we turned the car on him.  A second later, I spotted him on top of his dinner...
