Since my surgery and the cold weather we haven’t gotten to do a lot biking. But a break in the chill creates a brief opportunity to visit the Greenway. Jim gave Kaelin the go ahead to be the leader today. And of course where does he head us – the playground. The best part of many bike trails is the playground and the Greenway in Ocala is no exception. This playground is very popular. A wonderful stop for a little boy to burn off energy, a mom and dad to rest, and of course photo opportunities.
[slideshow]On the spur of the moment we decided to take a ride to the Fanning Springs Nature Coast Trail.
One thing we learned, I learned, was that I really need to bring my jacket and long pants whether it’s warm at the moment or not. It got rather chilly the last leg of the journey. Jim, my knight in shining armor, loaned me his jacket so I wouldn’t freeze. Overall though it was a really nice ride, with the view from the Suwanee River bridge being superb.
To top off the evening we stopped in Chiefland for a well deserved dinner. We randomly chose a resteraunt that turned out to have the best pizza we have ever eaten. The place was called ABC Mediteranean. Excellent food and service.
I also included pictures in my slide show of when we went camping on our bikes to Fanning Springs. That was about 2 weeks later and it was a blast. Met a guy there that was traveling across America on his bike. Realized camping is hard work but fun. Kaelin is a born camper. I can’t wait to go again. Soon.
