As usual is where there are a few more words about each ride.

I had hoped the Christmas lights on the house across from the Green (another green use Greg) would show, but too far away.
A ride through the center of the High School which has had no students for months.
This looks like I am deep in the country somewhere but I am not far from home.
Another golf course photo to show the double hazard — sandtrap and water hazard all in one.
My ride with Cindy took us to the town of Snohomish where we spotted this sign giving words to hope by.

    Nice, you might need some sunshine.

      When we DO get some sunshine, it has more often than not been at the END of my ride! So yes, we could do with more of that sun.

    Does the “thing” I see on your down tube hold your cell phone which you use for navigation? i’d love to see a close up and know more about it. Now that I have a phone that stays charged for more than a couple hours, I am thinking of using mine instead of dedicated GPS, but not sure how to have it handy. So far, I’ve had to put my feet down, open the bar bag and look at the phone. Another problem is now that I carry my big camera on rides around here in my bar bag there really isn’t room without concern for damaging one or the other.

      I will take photos later and email them to you. I keep my phone attached to my handle bar by a ‘phone attachment gadget’ (there are many out there now). The thing on my down tube can be used for a phone, but on a Bike Friday it is too far away from my eyes to easily see, and I would need to take it out to answer a call should one come. I use that for a few small items, and mainly to hold a charging brick for my phone that is on the handle bar.

      Will send photos to you that I think will show what I am trying to describe.

      Laura, I have a similar set up to Nancy’s. I use my phone for navigation, I like it much better than the Garmin I was using. And I also have a power pack that is attachable to the handlebars next to the phone. I’ll take some pictures the next time I ride.

      Laura, I sent photos to you so if you do not get them, let me know.

    So many rides for the first week! Wow! I’m waiting for it to warm up a tiny bit here.

      We have been very fortunate to have our temps in the 42+ range. I will ride in 35 or so as long as there is no ice or fog or rain or snow ;’-).

    Even without sun, it all looks so green!

    • By: NancyG Posted: January 9, 2021

      Oh yes Bob — we are the “Evergreen State”. Rain helps the ;’-).

    I totally forgot about the golfing green. Good one. There is also the village green, which I didn’t forget but didn’t use because our village green is totally white. And there is also the use of the word green as being not ripe.

      So, I think you have outlined at least eight meanings of green. I would venture to guess that no other color can claim that number!

    Bob beat me to it, all that green looks very very nice to me right now!
