Just a Short Ride

01clearwaterAfter two days too frosty and windy to ride, today was no less windy, but warm enough to handle it. It was about 45°F (7C) with stiff breezes from the northwest, carrying air that was cooler than the ambient temperatures indicated.

02stoneflowI went only as far as Barnes Park to look at Soldier Creek. It was pretty clear today, as visible in the first shot. For the second shot I clambered down the steep bank to that big flat stone formation that creates a small fall in the creek.

03prayerchapelAs previously noted, most of the time I ride now I’m just looking for a suitable prayer chapel for the day. This spot in Pecan Park called to me. I’m working over a couple of prayer requests from our online parish. At least my head is no longer exploding with stuff. But I still have no great interest in long challenging rides. I’m much more interested in quiet places and a little exercise.

    Isn’t it amazing how much peace you can feel when natural water is around!? Whenever I go back in my yard and sit by the creek, it is like all tension and worry slough off and I feel refreshed again. I guess that is where my little chapel is! Tee hee
