Both of these pics are taken in one of my favorite little parks on the bike path.
Beautiful views in all directions!
I'm trying to eke every last bit out of summer that I can. Today I went back on the bike path and causeway but this time with T. The day was another great one. I had on my new bike shorts (love them) and was riding my newly tuned up bike. (A Success!).
Surprising the hubby at work!We also rode out to see my hubby at his new job site. I hadn't told him I would be on the bike path today so I think he was surprised to see me.
T loved the Causeway which she had never been on. We were there nice and early so it wasn't too crowded. She had trouble finding me when I first got there. I guess I need to brush up my direction giving skills because last week the same thing happened with my other friends. I park on the waterfront in a free parking lot but it is not well known and apparently hard to find. That is good except when my friends are trying to meet me!
T on her bike!
On my newly tuned up bike!
Out at the cut
Back on the bike path. The house to the left is going to be
mine when I win the lottery. Lots of glass, beautiful lake views, cozy spot.
This picture doesn't do it justice.
Also, I did go white water rafting yesterday and had the best time imaginable! I loved everything about it. It took us a little more than two hours to get there. We got to ride the free ferry in both directions since the Crown Point Bridge is being rebuilt. It was in the middle of nowhere! We didn't go by anything but woods and lakes. Five of us went and we had an awesome guide whose grandmother was also in our raft! It was great. I loved the rapids! A dam is released which is where the white water comes from at this time of year. The temperature of the water was 70 degrees so no problems there. We were soaked for most of the ride. I did go swimming at one point which helped keep me cool for the rest of the day. The last two miles were just floating to get to our take out point which I was not as crazy about. Mostly because my body was tired and cramped of being in the same position. I loved all the splashing, the white water, "surfing - we rocked at this!" There will be pictures at some point as we all chipped in to buy the CD which made it quite inexpensive. It includes all the shots of us plus some scenic shots. It was very scenic and peaceful. I will repeat this experience!
