I was feeling a bit blue (well, a lot, actually) yesterday, so I decided to do what works for me - go on a long, exhausting bike ride. I filled the thermos with tea, made a sandwich, grabbed a camera and set off. The weather was a bit dodgy-looking, but as I went on, it improved (as did my mood) and it even started to get quite warm (especially on uphill sections.........!)
I went to Deviot via Gravelly Beach and back home via the Motor Road. It was not a particularly photogenic day, but grey days do have their own charms. Ate lunch on the little jetty at the Deviot Sailing Club. Watched the light dancing on the water. Poked around a bit and found these lichen-encrusted boulders on the beach.
All up - probably almost 40 kilometers round trip.
Afterthought: This piece (below) is finished now.
