The weather forecasters keep tricking us. Yesterday we expected a bit of sun and mid to high 40d temps. No sun (but no rain this time), and temps in high 30s for most of the day.
On my way to meet up with Cindy and Brenda (my buddies who joined the Little Free Pantry ride), I stopped for this broken wall.
We adapted our original route to accommodate Brenda’s errant brakes and avoided a few steep(ish) down hills. Our route took us into the town of Everett for some viewing and a stop for hot drinks and goodies.
This next wall is part of one I included in the “public art” challenge. It is challenging to get a good photo as it curves and wraps around a lot, showing off its mosaic and mirrored self.
As we stopped at the park, our halfway point, we each commented (did not complain mind you) about cold hands, cold feet, or both. Time to find the hot drinks.
Biknig back to downtown I spotted this mural wall and made my friends stop and wait for me as I headed back for it.
I rejoined them at the corner where they stood in front of this building with an interesting wall.
At last we spied our coffee shop. Well, hot chocolate for them and tea for me. Plus a sinfully delicious pistachio croissant that was needed for further warming up ;’-).
The wall outside of the cafe drew me to it.
We had warmed up enough — or the temp had risen a bit — to be comfortable for our ride home. A great day with great friends.
I hope to do one more wall post this month/year, but that will be weather dependent as it is not looking too inviting to ride over the next several days.
Happy Holidays everyone, and a grand New Year!
