Silver Pampas Grass Found
The woman pointed out that taking the bikes out were free. It wasn’t a particularly bright morning, but I would definitely feel more refreshed after a long ride. It was this ride that was the best part of my trip. It also only served to reinforce my thought that when I go somewhere, it is often best to go myself. That way, I can get more done. Even when I am with just one other person, I tend to tire them out. Just a few of the sights I saw as I rode around:

Eventually I had to head back. The rain became a bit harder, but I wasn’t cold, nor was I unhappy. I appreciate dreary days a lot more now. The air is cleaner and the pitter patter of the raindrops calming.
