Biking in Spring

posted by Sharon June 3, 2014 13 Comments

Are you enjoying nature this spring? After the long, long winter, Michigan is green, so green. We chose the perfect time to visit last week. The weather (finally!) turned warmer, so my family hopped on bikes and basked in the sun. Where I live, in California, we didn’t have snow this winter, but our landscape isn’t nearly this verdant. What a treat to ride along the tree-lined path in farm country. All 10 of us wheeled along with pleasure.

We crossed a bridge and found a lovely lake.

Nature draws us in and entertains and dazzles. The adults noted the tranquility. The young ones spied minnows swimming.

Young and older, we all felt refreshed by our morning ride. Nature invigorates, colors life with beauty, provides a place to bond with family and friends.

I’ll long remember the freshness of spring in Michigan, and biking through it with people I love.

How about you? Have you been outside much this spring?

Linking up with Texture Tuesday, Wednesday Around the World, and Sweet Shot Tuesdays. Photos are edited with Kim Klassen’s texture Colton. The theme at Texture Tuesday this week is “Nature.”

I ride my bike most every day and am always drawn to images of bicycles. Love these family photos of the biking adventure. My favorite, the photo of the kids looking over the bridge for the minnows. What a treasured memory!

Lovely photos Sharon. They tell a great story. I love the colours, the shadows and especially the softness of the trees in the third photo. Have a great week!
