Some snaps from my bike vacation!

Laura and I did a mini bike tour this Thanksgiving. We made it from Long Beach to Sunland. Then from Union Station to Laguna Niguel, where we biked to San Clemente, jogged inland to Escondido, then back out to Solana Beach. It was a wonderful weekend and we covered a lot of miles, drank some great beer and had the time of our lives!

Here are some snaps from the trip. All of them taken with my new point and shoot, the Canon G10. It has proven to be a great little camera. I certainly took more pics this trip than others. I think part of it is that taking the DSLR out is a bit of a chore and it's heavy. I would ride with the G10 bandoleer style and take photos. They say the "best" camera is the camera you have in your hand. That is to say, if you don't take it out and use it, then it doesn't matter if you own a Hasselblad or a Leica or a Holga.

Great photos -- that camera is going to serve you very well. I have a point & shoot that's not that great, but I actually take it with me on rides, etc., so while it can't compete with my DSLR, I still love it. And a few minutes of post-processing helps the photos a lot, as well.

I love the photos here, especially the second one from the bottom!
