Old & New #9

I have to guess that this will be my final old & new post! And surprised I am to have found so many.

I had a lovely sunny ride with two of my riding buddies yesterday through the farms and fields of the Skagit Flats.

Here are old and new farm buildings we rolled by.


The old one is very old… Well, maybe not so much by east coast standards, but old.


We had this gorgeous weather yesterday that afforded us these kinds of views…

… and this morning there is rain that ‘they’ say will be with us all day and into tomorrow morning. So glad we stopped at the pub for our lunch before the very end of the ride.

    Congrats, Nancy! 9 posts is quite commendable.

    Rachael and I are coming your way, btw. We’re leaving for Victoria in a few weeks and will bike back to Portland over the next month. We’ll be in Bellingham on June 28th, then Laconner for two days, and then Mukilteo before heading west to Port Townsend and a loop around the west side of the Olympic Peninsula. If you’re around, maybe we could hook up for a visit somewhere.

      Oh Darn! I don’t know that a meet up will work Scott. We have purchased an RV van that is due for pick up in the next few days. We may be going down to your neck of the woods (Sandy) as early as the first of next week. If you are in Mukilteo on Monday there MIGHT be a chance we will still be here, but I cannot say for sure.
      Your current trip plan sounds fun ;’-)

      It is indeed — especially when the sun shines!

    You’ve definitely gone over and above this month! Congrats! I had to look up where the Skagit Flats were. Certainly not just around the corner from you. Great representations of old and new. Also, congrats on the new camping van. Consider wandering my way in it.

      The Skagit Flats, so named because —well, it is flat — about a 35 minute drive north of us. We start in the town of Conway. Not much of a town, but has a fire station ;’-), and a place to park either near a ball field or at the red barn which is basically a convenience store.

      That is a generous offer to visit your area, and I will put it in the mix of things. I am not sure I can get Susan to be interested, but it is worth a try, so you may see us sometime in the near (or far) future.

      It is so good to see you able to get out on your bike for some riding.

    You have done well. I didn’t get one old / new photo. Just couldn’t get my head into gear with this one. Well Done.

    Thanks Tony. I sure do hear you loud and clear about not getting into gear for this challenge. Those old and new things just appeared out of no where for me. I was thinking of not getting any more after the first one! This July challenge should offer more opportunities.
