We had our turkey dinner quite early (Thursday to be exact) It was the best time for every member in our family so it was over and done even before the weekend started.
For the past month or so I had been searching here and there for a beach cruiser. I have wanted one for quite some time and just couldn't forget about it. The prices on these bikes can go quite high!!! And oddly enough in the United States you can get them for some very good prices at Walmart or Target. You even get selection with over 10 styles and brands to choose from.. but NOT HERE IN CANADA!! To this date the Canadian Walmarts still do not have even one beach cruiser in their stores yet?!?!
Whats up with that?? I am sure Canadian people are just the same as American people I mean we all ride bikes RIGHT?? *haha* "Just last week I saw my neighbor with a cruiser parked next to his igloo" *wink*
So after getting a tad impatient and not wanting to pay the big bucks the bike shops wanted.. I decided to turn to the classifieds.
So a week and a couple days ago I had come across a ad for a gorgeous lilac colored cruiser. I sent a message to the seller saying I was interested in the bike and wanted to buy it. After 2 days or so with no reply I thought "Hmm someone might have beat me to it, and the owner forgot to take down the add." I still had a glimpse of hope (CHECKING DAILY) and still seeing the ad still up. But after about the 5th day with no contact I just sort of gave up.. Well exactly one week later we got a reply. The owner apologized and had been away on a vacation!! Guess who was first in-line for the cruiser?? "ME me ME!" So we established plans to meet on Saturday. (The bike was not even in my town) I got so crazy with my search I sort of widened my areas to scour for a cruiser. We made a day trip out of it. Did a little shopping and grabbed a quick burger. Then it was time to go see the bike. I knew I was going to get it as long as it didn't have some huge dents in it or big scrapes from a crash or something. When we met with the owner and she wheeled the bike outside I INSTANTLY loved it!
It reminds me of Cotton Candy, Unicorns, Bubblegum, Flowers & Happiness.
I have yet to name this bike *Rolls eyes* "I know I was in the same predicament in my blog post last week with the blue vintage cruiser I purchased for $8.00 but a name has since been decided upon and the blue bicycle is called ~*Hyacinth Orchid*~
The drive home was lovely because the highway goes through mostly farmland, and I saw SO MANY cute baby cows on the trip. (I love cows!!)
