Summer evening bike rides

I've been blog absent for almost 3 weeks! I have no idea how or why this happened. Perhaps I just simply needed a break and time to focus on other things for a bit.

Have not had any time off work yet this summer (soon, I hope!) but have been trying to make the most of those gorgeous warm nights by going on bike rides on my newly thrifted bike. (An old seventies yellow bike I got for $35!) Simply stuff a blanket and a drink in my basket and off we go. Heaven. Ashamed to say I had not been on a bike since coming to Canada from Holland where I practically lived on my bike. Suffice to say I was more than a little sore and wobbly at first...
