Today was the yearly mammogram and I wasn’t sure I’d have time to squeeze in (no pun intended!) a ride. Luckily, I didn’t have to wait long for the doctor to come in to review the images. I dashed home and did a few chores, but within the hour I had Violette on my bike rack and was heading for The Parklands. I love this park (it is actually several parks that connect) and I’ve bicycled the entire bike path except for one short stretch, which I hope to do soon. Today, I was leaving from Turkey Run Park, going through the Strand, and turning around at Pope Lick Park. It was seven miles one-way.
We’ve had so much rain over the last week, but today was a beautiful day. I was amazed how flooded Floyd’s Fork was. Some sections were twice as wide as it usually is. I heard the part of the route I did today had been closed due to water over the bike path in places. They’s done a marvelous job cleaning up if that was true.
I kept looking for old and new things, but missed my best shot. A doe and her young one was startled by the rattle when I got my camera out of my bag and ran off before I got the picture. There were new leaves on old trees, of course. I’ll have to settle for the old bridge with all the new massive amount of water running under it.
I still struggle to get my pictures where I want them, so no telling where these will show up. I’m hoping one stays at the top so you aren’t just looking at words as you scroll down. We’ll see. The main thing is Violette and I had a wonderful bike ride.
