rain and shine
Friday off, so after some errands I saddled up and rode Terry Hershey. A strong wind out of the north-west and into my face made the out-bound leg challenging but I plugged on, thinking about the ride back with the wind on my butt. We've had a lot of rain lately so I was half expecting the reservoir to be flooded, but the road was dry. Bizarre weather, though - the sun was out but it was also raining lightly. Anyway, didn't last too long. A brief stop at Fry road to collect myself and eat my orange, then back at it, this time with the wind, which made some sections a lot of fun. I started to get hungry just before the park and rode the last few miles debating whether to make a sandwich at home or get in the car and hit Taco Cabana. If I'd had my wallet with me I would have probably just ridden straight to TC. I got home to find Susan, who was supposed to be lunching out but her plans changed, so we picked up some sandwiches and had a picnic sitting in the sun at the Edith L.Moore bird sanctuary. No exciting birds, sadly. Tomorrow it's off to Humble for the Lions Club ride - weather should be perfect.
