For our first family bike ride since returning from Argentina, we decided to check out the HBSCA Farmer's Market and then head over to the Island Airport for the boys' first flight with mommy as PIC!
The farmer's market was considerably more exciting than last year's attempt, with approx 25 vendors peddling everything from fresh veggies to maple cream goat cheese to cut flowers to acai berry smoothies.
We were very impressed, and quickly unloaded the last of our weekly budget on some home-baked peanut banana chocolate chip muffins ("Mommy, this is quite possibly the best muffin I ever ate in my life", quipped Alex!), a tomato, some fresh field greens, a few pretzels and a container of stinging nettle goat cheese, most of which we packed into our bike panniers, to eat later in the day (the baked goods we devoured on the spot).
The airport was super busy today with the usual weekend commercial and general aviation traffic, so we each did a few circuits, and then set off again on our bikes, to ride to the "beach playground", where we stopped and had our little picnic lunch from the Farmer's Market stuff. Yum!
