Happy Sunday! ~ 208
Some unrelated ramblings this morning. I had the best day (health wise) yesterday in recent memory and for the first time that I can remember slept through the night without waking up once. 🙂
The above image was taken with my little point and shoot camera that I carry on the bike. I did a 23 mile ride yesterday but it was a difficult ride as I chose a route that had some major hills. This is my favorite place to stop (it’s halfway through the ride) for a little energy snack and a 5 minute respite.
Couldn’t resist an image of my bike. I’ve had a bunch of bikes in my lifetime. This is the least expensive bike I’ve owned, yet it is the best bike I’ve ever had period. It’s called a fitness bike and is a cross between a road bike (really skinny tires) and a hybrid. On level ground in 27th gear I can get 22 mph, downhills usually top out at 30 mph and lately I’ve averaged 11.7 mph, which in my present condition isn’t bad. On my road bike I generally averaged 14.8 mph. Yesterday (because of the hills) I only averaged 10.1 mph. I was also passed by one woman and three men (on road bikes) like I was standing still.
All four of them blew by me and only one said “hi”, I always give the person I’m passing (when I actually pass someone) notice, “passing on your left” for both of our protection.
Finally I couldn’t leave without showing you at least one bird image. I missed the last two days on my bird feeder project and was able to shoot some birds yesterday afternoon.
Jeanne and I plan to go on a photo run this afternoon and hopefully we’ll find some things of interest to photograph.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
