Never Ever

“I could never in a hundred summers get tired of this.”

~Susan Branch~


One last summer hurrah

That is all I need

Til the season rolls around again

And I am on my steed


Summers tend to feel short in Wisconsin, but we northerners take advantage of the season as much as possible. Biking buddy and I had two wonderful days of wheeling in the sun over the past weekend, with unseasonably mild temps in the 70’s and 80’s F. Summer held off until yesterday, when cooler air arrived and September felt like autumn. I’m not putting the bike away yet, but at least I’ll have the photos in today’s gallery to look back on over the winter months and dream of the possibilities for next year’s warmest season. Photos are from the Interurban Trail in Ozaukee County, the shores of Lake Michigan and a microbrewery.

    That fishing pier is interesting–no rails?! Is it attached to the other pier that goes straight out?

      There’s a concrete wall in the middle and a rail runs along it for awhile. I wouldn’t recommend anyone unsteady on their feet walking out too far.

    What a beautiful area,. I love riding my bike around water, and the lake is so pretty. I love the sunset (rise) photo. I hope you enjoyed a good brew and I hope you have several nice days left before fall starts to feel like winter.

      That was a sunset photo, Dan. We were at a park on the lake, watching a buck travel through and hoping the mosquitos wouldn’t show up until after we left.

      I love biking aling Lake Michigan, whether it is in Milwaukee, Port Washington, Manitowoc or Door County. There’s something special about the waves crashing on shore, the smell of the mist and this time, the turquoise color of the water. So beautiful and peaceful!

      There are always great memories with my biking buddy, Pam. It’s about places, shared experiences and the ease of our friendship. We’re already thinking about next year’s travels.

  3. Terrific shots, Mary. I haven’t biked in a while, but am wondering if I should rent one soon and take it for a spin. In the tropics, we have perpetual warm weather, so other than the covid surge, I have no excuse to stay at home.
