To our great disappointment we were unable to ride this past weekend. The temperatures were too steamy. Here is a snap of our car thermometer after we'd left it for only a half hour to shop for groceries.
Yep, that's 6:30 in the late afternoon. Lovely.
It's not the ride to our destination - it's the ride back home that's killer. By mid afternoon the heat is bad enough that if you catch a few traffic lights, you just sit and bake over that hot asphalt, willing the light to change so you can get moving.
So, here are some snaps from 2 weeks ago when we rode down 98 a ways. It's always nice to see the water.
We ate at the Blue Parrot and stared at the Gulf water.
I saw some birds approaching as we rode towards home.
And here they are a bit closer. Sometimes it's hard getting decent shots from the back of a motorcycle.
This is headed home. More of the same, I guess, but it's much prettier in person. Hoping next weekend we can go somewhere.
This is the time of year we think about moving north, maybe to Tennessee. We also talk about having a pool put in but right now that is cost prohibitive. We'll see. anyway, hoping to ride and share an outing next week.
Stay cool, stay hydrated!
