I never thought it would stop raining. The wet coast really does earn its green and its title. With days upon days of dreary dark days, you know what happens when the sun finally breaks out… good ‘ol bike escape to the rescue! Oh I was waiting! Waiting so much in fact, I picked up a special […]

The golden hour nature artist strikes again

read

After I returned home from an unexpected day spent in town, I glanced up towards the sky. It was still blue! There was still time.
