We had a great time, but I think I kept them out too late because I was freezing by the time I got home last night and it was beginning to get dark.
"I'm sorry I kept you out so long and I hope that you are all recovering from your ride, by just spending a relaxing day at home."
I seem to get carried away with our beautiful earth and just want to ride on forever and see everything that I can possibly see, within my means of course. I'm not rich so I can't go far, but watch out if I ever win the lottery...I'll be off riding in every nook & cranny I can find. That is I'll take every side road and hardly traveled trail. I've seen all the major tourist attractions in the U.S. several times except for Niagra Falls and I can't get Jimmy to even consider going there...Maybe I'll just have to take that trip with someone else sometime. And I bet if I plan the trip ahead of time, he will go...at least I hope so. And if I win the lottery, I will also buy me a laptop, so that I can stay in touch with all my blogging buddies.
You might recognize this ride from my previous two posts because, I wanted to show them the changing leaves and took them on the same ride to Cumberland Falls...Unfortunately, the leaves hadn't changed much since my previous ride...Maybe just a teensy bit.
NO...we aren't parked in a "Disabled" parking space...(although we might be considered a little mentally unstable???)...it just appears that way. There's a concrete divider and the disabled parking spaces are on the other side from where we are. I just thought this would make an interesting picture.
I was trying to get a picture of the three of them, but Brandon likes to be silly....after all he's only 12 years old and silly is his middle name. He's hiding behind his mom in this picture...his hands on her shoulders give him away. Oh...and did I mention that Brandon made the Honor Roll with straight A's on his report card. It seems that Brandon & his best friend Matthew are a couple of "smarty pants," to the delight of their parents...and of course Grandma!
What's stopping at a gas station without coming across a couple of beggars. Everytime we stop here we have to feed these two male pups...they're relentless and won't give up. They're also very sweet and have learned to approach every vehicle and person who rattles a chip bag...they know the sound of a wrapper being opened very well, no matter how quietly you try to open it.
I hope that you can click to enlarge this picture because it has a beautiful rainbow in it. The wind was blowing the spray from the falls and it felt like it was raining a heavy misty spray and through the sunlight you could see rainbows being formed with every gust of wind. It was really quite beautiful and of course we all got wet. I was kinda afraid to use my camera because it's not waterproofed, but I took the chance anyway and it still works...Well I haven't tried it today yet...but I will.
I hope you are out enjoying this beautiful Sunday afternoon or just staying home enjoying it with family.
