Yesterday, to celebrate the first day of summer, we rode out to the Lutheran Seminary, and joined up with two friends also on bikes. It was a sultry, steamy evening, with every green and living thing reaching for the sky. We had to do some ill-fated off-roading, and the aroma of the plants crushed under foot and tire was intoxicating. I had hoped that we could travel down a path toward RPC that has beautiful vistas, but we were thwarted by some construction being done on one of our city's many bridges. Instead, we rode to a luscious garden located within our city's research park, plopped down in cedar chairs in a wood pavilion lit by mission-style lamps, and gazed over the pond while sipping rosehip tea and eating crepes. We stayed until 10:30 p.m., and it was still light enough to make our way home down the path. Welcome, summer!
Wow, Spiney, that bikeride sure sounds fun. I am also glad summer is here. Have you ever tried biking on the woodchip trail down by the Broadway bridge? Last week, a cougar was spotted there.Post a Comment
