The Virgin Bike Ride

    1. What’s stopping you, Jodi? Just do it. All Summer I’ve been riding my bike, on roads yes, but still riding. I even figured out if I go around the park that lies behind us a total of 3 times, total mileage would be about 10 miles. Have a great day today! 🌸

    1. I am so happy you enjoyed this, Catherine! It was such a gorgeous ride and there is really nothing more than I enjoy then to combine a source of exercise with my camera. I would love to go back to this bike path and stop in the village of Clarence to get more pictures and to also get some history on this incredible place. I hope you have a really wonderful day today! 💕😚💕

    1. One way to stay young, Holly, is to be active. This activity produces endorphins and adrenaline both of which make you feel very good indeed. I love riding my bike and I love hiking/walking as well. Both types of exercise I also enjoy bringing along my Canon in order to document the beauty that I see to share here. I encourage you to take exercising and incorporate it into your life. You won’t regret it. I hope you have a really good day today! 💕😚💕

    1. Thank you, YellowCable! These clouds lately have been absolutely incredible. I’m crossing fingers that these magnificent cloud formations stay when the Fall Foliage starts coming out. I am buying a special red filter for this very thing in order to make the clouds really pop along with the reds. I hope you have a really good day today! 💕🌹💕

  1. How wonderful to have a great bike path with lovely scenery and no cars!! I’ve been on my bike too and around here they are bike friendly!! Makes such a difference and gives more enjoyment when there are no cars and lots less danger with traffic. Glad you guys had a fantastic ride with such beautiful scenery!! I love the sky shots – what a gorgeous blue!! Much love to you! Donna

    1. Donna, by far this was the most enjoyable bike ride I have had all Summer long. It has been such a hassle trying to come up with routes in order to avoid heavy traffic and where I live that is far from easy to do. I am glad your roads are bike-friendly. Where I live the roads are country narrow type of roads with hardly any shoulders to speak of. I am so glad you enjoyed this post and I hope it encouraged you in some way to enjoy your bike for as long as you can before the cold weather gets here. I hope your day has been a great one and will continue to be so! 💕😚💕

  2. Looks wonderful. So green and lush! I keep on thinking I need to get a bike (my last one was stolen off my front porch),. But we don’t have that kind of scenery over here. Beautiful photos!!!

    1. I thank you so much for your comment. No matter how many thousands of pictures I take I always have the very exact same reaction and that is …. oh how beautiful! So when I hear someone else say this and admire the images that I present here, it really makes my day! I’m sorry to hear you don’t have anything like this around you. I have so much around me and a lot that I don’t even know about. I did not know about this bike path until my dentist talked about it which got me extremely interested. How many other places here locally exist that I don’t even yet know about? That is one of my new quests that I have embarked upon… To discover these places and then to show you what I found. May you have a gorgeous day today! 💕😚💕

    1. You are so very welcome, Sarah. I’m so glad you enjoyed this bike ride with us. I hope too that hubby and I will be able to ride all the places we want to ride. It is a great time of year to be outside. Crossing fingers we get a mild Fall this year!! Hope your day has been a good one! 💖

  4. OMG, the Village of Clarence… sighing! I was there so often. I remember that farmer’s market so well. It was decorated awesomely for Halloween. My daughter was three and we took a photo of her standing next to a huuuuuge pumpkin. Also, The Village of Clarence was the first destination for a little trip with our newborn son. So many beautiful memories. Thank you for this beautiful trip down memory lane, Amy 💖

    1. I must go back to the Village of Clarence again because there is just so much to see. It is like stepping back in time it is just so incredulous! And to think you knew exactly where this place is and that you used to go to this farmers market is blowing my mind! I will definitely have to go back around Halloween time to take pictures. I am so glad I brought good memories back for you through this post. It gives me the Goosebumps to think of where you are living now and that you’ve actually tread upon the very ground I did on the day I took these pictures. How small this world truly is! I am just thrilled you enjoyed this post, dear Erika! 💕😚💕

      1. Oh, yes, I just saw that photo of my daughter next to that pumpkin today… which amazes me even more.
        Isn’t that all amazing. I thought the same. I was there and (who knows) perhaps our ways even crossed once during that one year. Time completely loses its meaning. It feels like sitting in a time mashine knowing you were there a few hours ago and I was at the same place 20 years ago. Both units right now.
        Yes, I would love to see photos from that place around Halloween. I more than enjoyed it. Sending you the biggest hugs 💖💖💖

      2. Oh wow! You have got to be kidding me! I have got the Goosebumps again… Wow! Just thinking that you just were looking at that exact photograph and I had a post today of all days which included pictures of the farmers market in the village of Clarence. There is no time, Erika. We have just proved that very thing just now. I am amazed by what transpired today! 💝💝💝

  5. Glad you guys finally made it outside together!!! Sounds like a fun ride 🙂 Now that cold weather is creeping closer dear hubby will probably decide he wants to do more. Ha! Always the way. Stay happy and hug the babies…VK ❤

    1. I’m glad we finally made that bike ride too, dear friend! I’m keeping all fingers crossed that we actually do make the bike rides that we have every intention of taking before the cold weather gets here. Speaking of which, the opposite for hubby usually happens because he experiences the winter Blues. He doesn’t want to do anything other than sleeping, watching TV, or be on the computer. Oh how I pray that changes this year and that we can keep the momentum going that we both have right now! We both are hit hard with the lack of sun and the cold of the winter days. So glad you enjoyed this post today, VK. I hope you are having a good day today! 💕🌹💕

      1. I do have a light machine. I actually run it for our cats as well. Hubby has such a hard hard unfortunately, that even if I suggest he sit in front of this light for 30 minutes, he most likely will not. I will though. 😙

  6. Indeed this post was relaxing! Why not? You did the biking and took me along now to see the amazing sights 🙂 The clouds are truly beautiful and I especially liked the picture of the trees with the reflection in the water, and yes the duck.

    1. Oh cool! You like the picture with the duck in it. I thought it made for a really interesting contrast with the greens and then the reflection of the water and the composition as well. I am so happy you like that one! And I am so grateful that you decided to come here today to view this post. I know it’s rather a long one and so many people just don’t seem to have time these days to really sit down to fully enjoy what others have for them to enjoy. I hope with my fingers crossed that all the other places Hubby and I plan to take bike rides at, come to a manifestation where we really do go. I hope you had a wonderful day today, dear friend. I send you many many happy thoughts and much Love! 💕😚💕

  7. Loved this. ❤️ What a gorgeous ride. I wish I could get my husband to come along with me when I go riding. And I wish YOU were here so I could practice with you. I’m in serious bike training for a huge challenge in a couple of months and I’d LOVE a cycling partner. 🙂 beautiful photos here Amy. Keep having fun xx

    1. I don’t think you would want me along, Miriam. I no longer am “serious” but just cruise along, averaging a speed between 12-14 mph. I’m finding out I get as good a workout in even when I don’t pump until my legs fall off. Now I’m more into enjoying what is around me and what shots I can take. I wish you all the best for training. I know how that is!! YOU keep having fun too! That’s the only way to live in between the adult stuff. 😘

      1. Absolutely true Amy. In all honesty I’m more like you, I like to cruise as well but I think I’m going to have to pick up my pace a bit for this challenge. Take care and big hugs xx 🌹

      2. I do not envy you at all. I just don’t like to rush or push when I’m on my bike anymore. I used to be like a maniac. Those days are over with at least I think they are! GOOD LUCK!!! 🌹

  8. You did get some incredible skies in those shots! Wow on the one through town, and also the one with red buildings separating the lush greens from the blue skies. That’s a great ride, thank you for taking me along 🙂
