I was having such a fun/exasperating time getting this new blog setup that I had to make an effort to tear myself away to go for a ride. Good move. When I got to the bay the day was so gorgeous that I wanted to ride forever. The day could not have been more beautiful. Blue sky, sunshine. Always a scenic ride, today was remarkable in that I saw a great blue heron, white pelicans confused by the warm weather, and an elegant egret mere feet away. And me with only my lousy cell phone camera. Ach. On the trail, cheerful strangers wishing each other happy new year. A perfect day to slow down, appreciate our world and reflect.
