Cool Ride

If you’ve been around for a while you may remember a post titled Destination Equals Motivation.  Today, my daughter and I set out for a ride that was completely motivated by the destination.  That and the beautiful weather! Just for a change of pace, I’m going to present it as a photo essay.

On the way way to our destination we passed trees that bloomed against antebellum backgrounds.

 

...and boats being swarmed by gulls...

 

Finally we reached our destination!

 

We parked our bikes in front of a broad swing and sat to enjoy our shaved ice on the most beautiful day so far.

 

But clouds rolled in and suddenly eating shaved ice on a swing facing the sea (and its breeze) became a very cold thing to do. So we sought shelter at a friendly store.

So… riding toward a shaved ice stand and seeking shelter in a candy store may not be the best way to get into shape.  But in our defense, someone did walk into the store and say, “It has dropped ten degrees in the last ten minutes.”  And it was a very nice afternoon with a daughter who loved both of the desinations.

That’s her shaved ice hanging from the handlebar, by the way.  It was too cold to eat!  And it didn’t spill on the ride home. 

Hopefully the small successes really do count for something.

    Pretty sights. Precious memories. Can’t ask for a better bike ride than that.

    Kami, what’s the deal with shaved ice? Is it what we call Sno-Cones in the Midwest, ice with a flavored syrup poured over it? Or something more exotic?

      It is a lot like a snow cone, but the ice is shaved more finely and not so granular in shape. I love Snow Cones that are served in cones. We don’t see those too much anymore. Everyone uses cups now. That’s just not as good!
