Beach, bikes, biking, chincoteague, Eagles, nature, songs in head
Whenever I ride my bike, a variety of songs pop into my head – “I ride my bike, I roller skate don’t drive no car” (Brand New Key by Melanie). But we needed to drive my truck to get to ride our bikes!
Then pops in: “I’ve got a bike. You can ride it if you like
It’s got a basket, a bell that rings and
Things to make it look good
I’d give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.” (Bike by Pink Floyd) But we took the basket off of Kathy’s and she hasn’t got a bell yet.
So I guess we will just settle on “Bicycle, bicycle, bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle” (Bicycle Race by Queen). We headed to Chincoteague for our first outing together. I use to ride my bike around Montebello Lake when I was working. This is my first time out this year. Kathy’s co-workers gave her money to buy a bike when she retired. She picked out a cruiser.
The Wildlife Loop is a 3.2 mile adventure. We went around twice. Kathy looking for the eagles. Saw the nest. None of the eagle babies survived this year.
Next stop is the Swan Cove Trail, which is 1 mile round trip.
Nice path that takes you to the ocean.
Park the bikes…
…and walk over the dunes to this.
An old stump with seashell ornaments.
Back on the bikes to continue the loop. Saw lots of egrets, ducks and red wing blackbirds.
Another pit stop along the way. An observation platform. No bikes allowed.
Oh yea, we saw a mud turtle.
A type of dandelion?
Our National Park selfie.
Great day of bikes, nature, beach and God!
Looks like a nice trail!
Can’t wait to go back!
