The weather here has been so nice with clear blue skies and low humidity and temps in the low 70’s. I made it a point to take advantage of the weather and ride, ride, ride….
the leaky toilet and the dripping kitchen sink are going to have to wait.
The first segment of the ride took me East across the Genesee River through the residential neighborhood of Irondequoit, which was an extremely peaceful and pleasant ride. Traffic was light And those that were out were very courteous. Heading back to my own neighborhood I traversed the entire length of the Irondequoit Lakeside Trail (about 5 miles).
Below is a picture of yours truly taking a leisurely break in the woods along that trail.
Then it was back across the river and into Ontario Beach Park. The first order of business was to ride out to the end of the pier shown below. It’s exactly 1 mile (total out and back) and it’s amazing how different the temps can be ˝ mile out into Lake Ontario.
Of course once out to the end of the pier there’s many distractions to help one such as I to hang around for a bit. What’s bluer (sp?); my bike, the water, or the sky?
Through the marvels of cellular communication, my bride and I met up for lunch near the lake after which she went shopping and I continued riding. I headed up the Genesee River Trail, another of my favorite neighborhood MUP’s. I snapped a few pictures of some waterfowl. The one below I almost deleted at home due to poor focus….until I spied what the ducks may have been looking at.
O.K. Heron, we’ve got you surrounded!
After the river trail I looped through the Greece neighborhoods along interstate 390.
I’m not berry smart but I did see these growing on a chain link fence. The berries are about the size of a large ball bearing.
