    Today's ride w/PICS - Seminole Park, FL

    - as promised, this is the third in a series of posts to show pics of local rides... this 5-mile loop ride is special to me and almost essential during the blistering heat and humidity of summer as it offers shade, water, and water-cooled breezes - a very pleasant way to spend a morning...

    - i generally get to this ride via a frenetic 4-mile dash through extremely high-speed (50mph+) urban traffic; no way would i consider riding on the main route (Park Blvd.), although i do ride auxiliary roads with little fear if the right lane is wider than normal... sidewalks are nearly everywhere in the county...

    - there are a number of water impoundments off each corner:


    - cheesy but fun additions abound for peds:


    - water from the Gulf of Mexico feeds through to create brackish impoundments:


    - every lane is bounded by trees:


    - looping around:


    - and again:

    - cutoffs from the main road lead to other short loops:


    - lots of shade:


    - and finally, to yet another water's edge (one of five in this ride):


    - here's a new friend (hanging around with mouth open):


    - but alas, never, ever go swimming!:

    Great pics! It is always interesting seeing the scenery that others get to enjoy-especially when it is different from what we're accustomed to seeing everyday.

    Looks wonderful, you guys having any problems from the fires up there? We had a lot of smoke again yesterday, sure makes the recovery slower, today looks better though.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    - couldn't even go outside because the smoke was so bad day before yesterday... weather pattern was *concentrating* the smoke, funneling it directly over our county!

    - today looks OK, but tomorrow's forecast includes - you guessed it - more smoke!

    Well, lets hope for some rain. I am looking out the window right now and it looks like LA, brown layer of air. Minor changes in wind direction seem to have a big effect and with the storm hanging off the coast the winds have been pretty strong.
