What a fabulous first day of the year! It was 14C/57C and the sun was shining. What a feeling! I even saw someone in cycling in shorts but wasn’t fast enough with the camera to get a picture of shorts, shins and thighs.Of course, later in the afternoon the temperature dropped and as the shadows lengthened, it did feel cool.
It was so enjoyable being out that we dallied, taking lots of pictures and couldn’t even finish the planned route but had to take a shortcut home. The route, by the way, was excellent. I recently claimed there is nothing new to ride around here, but I was wrong. Looking for a route that avoids dirt paths and roads with too much traffic, I got us on some completely new roads that we will certainly ride again.
Let’s start with the chimneys. These are my token chimneys and I won’t post any more until I find something different or unusual. We have enough chimneys here but there aren’t very many different styles. They all look more or less the same. I took all three pictures from our driveway using a zoom lens.
