#1 …. The purpose.
Got it covered.
#2 …. The place.
Ready and waiting.
#3 …. The person.
The MAN is out of the basement.
*Picture of MAN goes here.
Use your imagination.
Finally all three in order. It only took all Summer to have this happening. Hubby had been down in the basement involved in a very complicated project. He now is aware as informed by wife that said such projects are for Winter, not Summer.
At long last I found myself in a place I had been looking forward in being all Summer. Town of Clarence Bike Trail. With a newly purchased Thule Bike rack my bike and hubby’s were beginning to have adventures.
This bike trail used to be a railroad. It is so well maintained that even the perfectionist aka hubby was impressed. What a pleasure it was to ride my bike without the hassle of traffic. Oh for the JOY! And the scenery and the unexpected surprises that were ahead of me. Thank goodness I brought my Canon along with me.
The trail as I said was absolutely breath-taking. Here are a few images of that trail …. (click on first image to open gallery)
And let me show you a picture I took from that unique bridge. The light was just perfect and the fencing made for a pretty remarkable picture. Wanna see?
The landscape all around us … goodness me! I felt like I was in a different world. So quiet, tranquil, even hubby wasn’t talking. Although tween you and me, when we first started out all hubby could talk about was “work”. I finally came out with … “You are about as fun as a bowl of soggy cereal. Come on, we are here to relax!” From there things turned for the better. He did get the hint. LOL
The sky was magnificent that day AGAIN. Lately I just cannot get enough of clouds. How so deeply touched by what I am seeing in our sky, makes my Heart feel as though it has stopped beating as my soul takes flight to the skies. A gallery of what we saw is below.

Turning a corner when we crossed that unique bridge we came across Clarence Hollow Farmer’s Market and a whole world of days gone by in our present. I was like a kid in a candy shop, saying “oh wow” out loud countless of times. This is the Village of Clarence (for those history buffs, this link will bring you the fascinating history of Clarence) in the gallery below.
Total mileage for that day was 8.4 miles. It felt like nothing. There is actually another bike path that joins this one, adding another 6 miles if you care to continue. Round trip would make it a total of 20 miles. I could have done it, (I think) but hubby no way.
There you have it. My virgin bike ride on a totally awesome day with a man who finally decided to come out of the basement. We have plans to go to several more places and you bet I am bringing my Canon. I hope you enjoyed this post and relaxed a bit.
