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!
But I didn’t make it that far this round. Sometimes the sun only comes out for so long, so you gotta just make a break for it with no planning.
Most times I head out on the bike, it’s really just an excuse to go enjoy a little nature. I rarely bring anything back, unless I’m going into the next town for farm eggs.
There’s still major clean up to do with our ice storm. I love how the city cleared the paths, but there’s still a lot going on in the bush.
No, I have no idea what to do with it. But when has that ever stopped a collector?
Maybe mounted in my big picture window with something hanging off it?
No idea. Any ideas?
Aside from a rare and lucky find, I hit a new area of the trail this round. It’s not a path I traditionally take, because it’s a little more remote. But on this given day, there was lots of folks walking, so I ran with it.
And ran into lots of water. Beautiful, stunning sights, that would soften up any tough day one may be going through.
While I really enjoy the bike rides, and all the astounding beauty I get to ride through, there’s one other byproduct that results whenever I get out there.
I can be having the most difficult, crappy day. But when this becomes your view, the hardship appears to just melt away.
I love how my sister always references my parents when she’s watching a Maui sunset. She just feels closer to Heaven.
I feel the same way. Whenever I come across a sight that just makes my jaw drop, it’s always a good time for a little chat with the big Guy upstairs.
It’s as if the sight is meant to stop you in your ‘tracks’, and you can’t help but be grateful for all the good things we really do have on Earth.
Especially during lucky big stick days.
