The Way Out

Starting out on this sunny 57 degree day I was fine, but after the first couple of miles my hands were cold and the wind was making me shiver. 

But oh the scenery just kept getting better and better. 

In addition to letting me drive, Henri brought chocolate.

 He also found some gloves for me to wear, pulled up my hood and let me have the last piece of chocolate.

Yes, yes this IS fun and I like it very much!  He just forgot to tell me I had chocolate on my lip. 

We ended up riding 36 exhilarating miles on this glorious autumn day in Maine breathing in the smell of the pine scented woods and fading autumn leaves as the trail led us through a tranquil wilderness bog surrounded by wildlife and the calm serenity of a windswept open field. 

Nearly back to where we started out we came upon Jasmine and her master just starting off on their journey. 

I do believe I even saw her wink at me as if to say "I always have fun here too."

It's great to see your smile, even if it is a bit chocolatey!
