It has been some time since I wrote here, so here goes…..
We have been here over a year now (as Cindy wrote about), and I have been riding my bike to work for at least a year. One would think that it would get easier, but that does not seem to be so. Perhaps I am just getting older as fast as I am getting in better shape.
In any case the ride to work has been interesting lately. The bay always puts on a good show. A while back, as the sun was going down, there was a storm on the horizon, the top was silver edged, the right orange tinged and on the left the rain was falling and the sky behind was purple.
Mornings have shown the Clare shoreline as stark dramatic hills and cliffs, shrouded in mist, or hidden in the fog. Some days the bay laps quietly against the shore and others it crashes with an unexpected vigour.
The summer was nice but the winter is back and I am once again riding to and from work in the dark.
But the adventure continues and the thrill is not gone.
