Chompetty Chomp Chomp


Yesterday, Robb and I went out to the Lafayette Reservoir, which, we had heard, was the home of bald eagles. It was a woefully bad bird-sighting day, but we did get to see some amusing mammals.


Robb said that he had read a comment about this park, that if Disney ever wanted to turn the place into a theme park, all they would have to do is bring in the cars and lay down the track, and they would have a roller coaster.

Although the trails were paved, we found this park CHALLENGING, in terms of wheel chair usage. Robb would go flying down the super-steep hills, leaving me in the dust, and then I would shove him back up the hills, pushing as hard as I could. We were clearly an amusing spectacle for the hundreds of dog walkers and baby-stroller-pushers on the trails.

We make a good team, one older couple told us.


But we already knew that.

Ok, now I have this mental image of Robb barreling down the hill with Lisa chasing behind, and all I can think of is "Keystone Kops" (or maybe "The Monkees").

I think you have a pretty good picture of what "hiking" with Robb and Lisa looks like, these days. We're a bit of a menace to the dog-walkers!

You laugh, but Robb has been using my bike glove with his wheelchair, and actually melted the rubber off the palms.
