Eureka Fire Dept.

Today was my CPR & first aid certification at the Eureka Fire Department. I insist on being trained by people who use the techniques regularly.

A frost met me as I pedaled out around 7 AM. The 10 miles passed in 40 minutes and the classroom was locked. Trying to keep warm, I cruised the the Eureka waterfront to kill time.

The views along the highway are wonderful. There's always a variety of egrets and other birds to be seen. Unfortunately, the ride home was not as tranquil thanks to late afternoon traffic.

funny... because its true
