As usual, the short story for each ride is on my blog.

Tea and snack stop on my ride with Cindy
Couldn’t resist this little guy on a neighborhood bimble.
Window and Door to just about nowhere.
Paine Field Airport empty this day.
Pathway through the high school campus
Entering the trail for a ride into Everett.
Shortly after entering the trail there is a hill. In my direction it is all down ;’-).

I have been fortunate to get in plenty of riding this month, and will hope for some dry days in February for more.

    You did phenomenal for the wettest January! Nothing like a bad upcoming forecast to spur you into a ride. That is one patriotic, masked goat. Made me laugh. I hope February gives you many good (or at least ridable days).

      Thanks Em, I feel fortunate to have found a lot of good riding days even if for very short ride. Yes, our neighborhood goat is fun.

    I like how you have a “Shawna Loop.” In the same way, The Feeshko and I have many routes we take while walking our dog. One of them goes past the house of one of her friends who used to own a Hallmark Store. Occasionally we have to stop to talk to the friend, so I call it the “Card Lady Route.” “Her name is Pam,” The Feeshko reminds almost every time I say it.

      I have several routes I do from home, so it is nice to have a name for one that reflects the route and I can recall which one that is ;’-). Plus, I like remembering my meeting Shawna. Have not seen her since.

    What a good batch of rides! You certainly defy the weather!
    Thanks for including your blog address – I love reading the background stories to your rides.
    “Keep off the grass” – ha ha, I would for sure.
    And I got to see Susan’s amaryllis! Beautiful. I have one that has bloomed three times in one year which I find totally amazing. I do not have a green thumb.

      This was our first year to have an amaryllis and Susan got it at a (distanced) gift exchange at one of our (distanced) camp outs.

    For some reason I can’t edit my comments.
    Forgot to mention:
    Wonderful fanciful door to nowhere and gotta love a trick-or-treating goat that disappeared and came back again!

      I love that the goat was ‘stolen’ and then returned to its spot as if magically. I too like that door and window, though I wish they would spruce up the window frame ;’-).
