For a long time I was thinking about getting a bike and then the unexpected happened. One of my friends asked me if I could come over to his house and help him to get his internet working. Another friend was nice enough to bring me there and so we got it done.
As a result, I ended up with a bike.
After a few weeks, I decided to ride it, so excitedly I went down to the nearest gas station and filled the tires with air. Then, I rode down the hill and over to Rock Creek Park.
Once there I was so happy to be away from the cars for a while…and only a while as I would soon find out.
So, I ride down a long hill and I loved it like a love song…baby!
I get to the bottom of the hill, and head south. It wasn’t long before there were cars behind me and no where for me to be but the street. Yet, I was still enjoying the ride. eventually I decided to stop and head back.
It didn’t take long for me to get annoyed by the cars, I just wasn’t expecting there to be so many. I was so much different from walking where I would be on a trail through the woods higher up and the cars wouldn’t be an issue but down here it made me nervous.
As I continue I happen to see a female deer browsing the vegetation nearby. In fact, she was closer than she appears in the picture. I would have preferred to use my iPad, but I didn’t bring it.
So, I get off the bike and start to take pictures of her and even did a short video as you can see here.
It was nice watching her for a while and then I continued on the way home and while normally “what goes up must come down”, this would be the opposite for “what went down, must now go up”. You think I rode the bike up that steep hill.
Thankfully there were only a few cars going up the hill so it made it easier for me to walk it up.
Oh, and I ended up seeing the same deer again, LOL!!!
