A gentle ride on a warm sunny day

Today was the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice.  

I invited friend Carol to join me as I rode the fixed gear around Sauvie Island.  I have not biked around the island in years, but used to ride from Hillsboro up and over the West Hills to get there just for added miles.  Today just around the island would be sufficient.  There was a lot of traffic, but it was bike friendly. (perhaps owing to a heavy police presence)

There were chicks in the nest and the Osprey pair were busy bringing in food.  I didn't get any good photos of delivery.

We rode out to the beaches and spent a few hours just watching the river roll by.  Carol was brave and spent some time swimming.  The water was too cold for me!






The beach was busy, and it was a good day for people watching.


After a few hours it was time to pedal back.  I was getting hungry!
