Back in the Saddle

Shepherd to Kountze

Woke up feeling ready to ride today so we had some breakfast and took off. It was a beautiful day and we had the wind mostly at our backs. 

Lots and lots of water this side of Texas heading for the Bayous of Louisiana! This is Trinity River.

The rain we had a last week has it swollen and brown.

We stopped in Rye at the Convenience Store and got lunch. Rode another ten miles and sat down to eat.

Heading out after lunch and it was so pretty I asked Em to take a picture. My phone holder broke when I fell off the bike and Susan let me buy her phone holder which I so appreciate but it take more to get the phone off and on so I didn't take pictures today.
