It was about 3:30 pm when I got on Rhododendron for the last ride for 30 Days of Biking 2014. It felt colder than the phone weather ap’s 48 degrees F, maybe because of the north-northwest wind. Was glad I wore the glove-mittens.
Had wanted to make a slightly more spectacular ending to 30 Days of Biking but settled on a revisiting of Weaver Park.
Once again loved riding on the bike lanes on Main Street. Wonder how long it will be before I don’t think of them as “new.”
Stopped for a shot of the little grove of oak trees across from the Dart plant.
Weaver Park looked empty in the wind as I walked Rhododendron through what I thought was a shortcut to the purported buffalo-wallow pond.
Took a while of gazing out in the pond to see the ducks, at least a pair of mallards and also a pair or two of non-mallards (blue-winged teal, as I was later able to identify!). Also something swirled in the water close to shore but was not able to identify it.
On the way back took a photo of one of the bordering trees
On the way home got a photo of a spring bulb garden I’d often admired.
And tomorrow will be the start of the National Bike Challenge!
