Evening Bike Ride

Our car won't start...
tonight we decided to take a little
bike ride. D's bike hasn't had use in years
so he filled the tires with air and we headed
out... we didn't have much time before dark.
We made it to town and paused by the sign post.

Our sign is still there, faded and pointed in the
wrong direction from the time when we had
our gallery down the road
where the river meets the sea.

We kept going...like homing pigeons...

The tide was very low...

and ended up near our old gallery and
Ellie May's (our cat) first home and territory.

We spotted about 4 young kingfishers flying
around and here's one of them taking a break.

We had just enough light to make it back home.

Am so glad we ventured out!

Hi Lori,
Oh, the car was towed to the repair shop and D went along with it...it wasn't til nearly 3 pm. and after
working on taking it apart that they realized they had ordered the wrong part! Fortunately they gave him a loaner to get back home. We'll see what tomorrow brings!
Wish you could visit here, too!

I do love riding my bike but have only taken it out about 4 times so far this year. I just worry about the traffic! Have a nice visit with your Maine relatives and thanks ahead of time for showing them my blogs! Have a great weekend!
