For much of this summer I had wondered if our biking days were done. For a number of reasons, we hadn't been out and the season was drawing to a close. I grabbed a vacation day so we could enjoy a dry day to close out the weekend. We spent part of it with a nice ride. It was wonderful to be on the bike. It made for a super vacation day.
We knew it would be a while before we were back at the house in Pennsylvania so we stopped on the way home for the last glads of the season. The field was still colored with glads in bloom so they would be available for another week or two. We were happy our roadside tradition continued for one more year.
