|The alley after two days of nearly 60F temperatures.|
My first goal was to get out of the alley which I accomplished just fine. It was actually easier than I'd anticipated. My second goal was to get a photo of another stump sculpture I'd discovered in Kirkwood.
|Unlike the other two I've found, this one has been painted. The Pelican is rather impressive.|
I spent the rest of the late afternoon ride just wandering around. There was lots of water from the run off of the snow melting.
|Through the Looking Glass?|
The sun was getting low in the sky as I headed for home.
Getting back into the alley was a little more exciting than I liked, but I stayed up. It would have been a cold wet fall.
|Three or four inches of water surrounded by slush -- yum, yum.|
As I was putting Billie away I noticed a familiar smell in the air. Sure enough my neighbor had pulled out the lawn chair and was firing up the Barbecue.
It was good to be back on the road.
