Finally, some good weather. Temps in the low 70s, a little wind, not too much, and interesting things to see. One of my longest rides so far this season which is a late start.
Went down the road where last year two women said they saw a wildcat and her cubs crossing near them. (twisted grammar).
My treat was to see 4 deer, a doe and 3 yearlings, grazing placidly in a recent cutting. Managed to resist the newly opened ice cream stand (well, I had just finished a Snickers when I stopped briefly at the beach.) Ah, Spring! And the long summer stretching out ahead.
Got the old Fuji off the training stand in the basement and am thinking of using it for local jaunts and maybe a few outdoor painting sessions. Think I can improve my weekly cycling total by not limiting my rides to those requiring full battle gear (shoes, shorts, jersey, etc.) In choosing places to paint it is much easier and user-friendly to take the bike, at least for small plein air oil sketches. My camera finally gave up after I dropped it twice so I guess I will have to illustrate future posts.
