Exploring on two wheels (and tricycles)

September 28, 2016

uh-oh, can I make it? ;)
lots of bunnies at the playground!

Bike rides were a big hit for everyone here this summer.  It was a great way to end a hot summer day -- a ride down to the playground for an hour and then a bit of exploring around the town on some back roads.  
On my own, I biked along West Ave., a mostly-flat country road directly across the valley.  Though there are some hotter areas, it is shaded for the most part which is a great relief.  I also discovered a small roadside stand on West Ave. and developed a habit of stopping for few cookies whenever I passed by there.  The little kids were thrilled when I brought them home one. ;)  

It's awe-inspiring to ride down that road and look to one side to see rusty red tractors moving across the golden fields wavy with heat cutting hay and straw, and to look to the other side to see a thick forest of maples rife with chattering chipmunks. ;)  For emergency contact, I am always equipped with the old iPhone which has a tolerable camera, but even when I brought Mom's Nikon once, I couldn't seem to capture the serene beauty of that place.  Some of you might recall how much I love wide open fields, red barns, and rundown farmhouse so, as you have already guessed I'm sure, this road is my haven. ;)
