Being a Rainiac, or on the Rainiac Team for November, I could not allow the threat of rain deter me from a ride today. I did look closely at the forecast and it seemed I might have a good window (but no sucker hole) in the early part of the morning. Sooooo… I got geared up and on my bike at 8:30 this morning. It was a bit cold, but not raining (yet).
This piece of art is tucked away behind the nearby elementary school. I found it a couple of years ago while doing my local exploring, and saw a paved trail that intrigued me to follow where it went. Turned out it went by this..
I was of course pleasantly surprised to find this art work, but more impressed when I noticed the attached placard.
First and second graders! Quite talented young artists, I with not an ounce of art talent in me, thinks.
When I took the Grands on this little ride a while back and showed them the “cocoon”, the then 7 year old grandson was sure to correct me that it is not a cocoon —- it is a chrysalis. My error.
Gradually it did begin to rain, slowly at first and pick up intensity as the mid-morning continued. Now already wet, and warmed up, I extended my ride through my neighborhood and came across this guy waiting for the rain to stop.
Had a great morning riding in some rain ;’-)
