Well how about that eclipse today? I have to say it was kind of underwhelming. I talked to a couple of folks who didn’t even notice it. I did see a bit of a difference, but if I hadn’t known it was happening, I wouldn’t have seen it. Ah well, we’re supposed to get a better one here in K-Town in another seven years.
I went for a bike ride in the country today, but before we get on with that, I’ve got three photos of my big night out on Saturday night!
Wait for it!
I decided to eat out at Ormsbee’s store in Sunbury. They do a decent pizza, they have ice cream and they have picnic tables. I sure know how to live!
Then I drove along Maple Road and home. As you can see, it was clouding over and I believe we got some rain later in the evening.
Now to today’s bike ride.
This was my favourite ride on the Cataraqui Trail, into Sydenham. Usually I start at McFadden Road, but last time it seemed too short so today I started at Perth Road Village.
There is something going into this spot in Inverary.
At the entrance to the trail, the goldenrod and Joe Pye Weed are in bloom.
Goldenrod is really quite pretty…unless you’re allergic to it.
The eclipse was going on when these pictures were taken, but was not at its height yet. I’ll show that tomorrow.
It was great to get outside and get some good exercise, leave the computer screen, politics and worries behind. What a beautiful day!
