In all we were gone and riding a good 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Good thing I have a good seat on my bike with a nice thick gel cover. I want to kiss the people who invented gel covers. A mighty fine invention indeed.

No pics of yesterday's ride however. Last time, hubby was so gracious and patient as I stopped constantly as different things caught my eye that I thought I'd go easy on him and not even tempt myself by taking my camera along. We just rode and rode and rode with nary a stop to drink water. Of course, that didn't stop me from several times noticing something and saying I wished I would have brought the camera along.
The bike ride times this year have been really good for me and hubby. It's our way of clicking out, being together with no pressures but how fast to go and what street to turn down. It's just fun being together touring around the city. It's funny how getting out in God's creation, feeling the sun on your back and a slight breeze in your face just washes all worrisome thoughts away and allows you to be in the moment. Who can stew about the negative when you are looking at beautiful green coulees, a blue river running through it and myriads of colors of wild flowers? When we see all the lovliness of the world God created and see the order in it, it is so much easier to trust that He will also take care of us and release it to Him. And we wonder what we're worrying about in the first place.
And on that note, I can't resist just one more picture from the riverbottom.
