Breaktime @ Annenberg's, 08-26-2011

Today's ride: 30 miles, Varner-Portola Loop (http://connect.garmin.com/player/109517087).  Back when Annenberg was alive the gate guard would hassle me for taking a break here.  I never could figure why I couldn't use some of his shade for a few minutes without a hassle.  Today the groundskeepers cleaning up weeds didn't seem to mind.  A great improvement....
