Head Cleared.....

Took one of those "head clearing" rides. Needed one. No destination, no purpose, just a ride to nowhere.......

Did find some interesting places to take a few photos......

All of these photos were taken within the city limits of Hampton, Virginia.....

Overlooking the Bay.....


An old entryway to somewhere.....


A Bridge To.....?????.....


Seems like such a long way to the top.....

Pirate flags are there because of this event this weekend......

Happens every year and is a fun time.....

There is no cargo as this was just a ride for the clearing of the head. Needed to think through some "personal" issues and a long ride is a GREAT way to do just that.......

There's no better way to think through issues than a long, solo ride. If the ride is really long, thinking also keeps the mind off the discomfort/pain/fatigue.

If more people did this (i.e., head clearing ride) the world would be a better place.
