It's been a week since that fateful day when we ended our employment with SDC, and we've been basically vegetating......time to get out and do something physical, right? How about a bike ride? There are many miles of Carriage Roads we have yet to traverse, but we have done about all we can do out of the Eagle Lake trailhead, so we decided to get an early start and head over to Jordan Pond to see if we could snag a parking spot and ride some of the roads out of there.
We left home about 9:30 am, and arrived at Jordan Pond just before 10 am, and what do you know? There were a dozen parking spots still available.....I guess the secret is getting there before 10 am! We intended to ride south to Seal Harbor, and followed the signs in that direction, however after just 1/2 mile we came to signs advising no bikes where allowed beyond that point as the Carriage Roads were on private property and only pedestrians and horseback riders were allowed.......NO BIKES! The road up to that point had been all downhill so we had to turn around and ride 1/2 mile back uphill......doh!
......we came across a flock of turkeys in the middle of the road at one point, but as we approached they headed up a game trail leaving the road to us.......
TLE had planned street tacos for dinner, so around 5:30 I lit the Sea-B-Que to grill the pollo asado she had purchased sometime ago. Tony came out with his some Jack to grill some burgers over the firepit, so I helped him get the fire going. We sat talking and laughing until almost 8 pm....what a great evening! And, the food was not bad either.....lol!
Thanks for stopping by!
