As it became obvious to me that the Mayans were wrong and the world would not come to an end today, I decided to get back to the business of updating this blog. I also decided the time was ripe for my annual Christmas light ride.
The 3rd Annual Christmas Light Hunt was conducted this evening under partly cloudy skies and a brisk breeze. Temperatures were appropriately cold, slightly above freezing, and even an occasional snow flake fell from the sky. Ride membership remained consistent with previous years, holding at a total of one rider. Road conditions were excellent, which made me quite happy as I recalled the icy conditions of the inaugural event.
This year’s ride took me around Lake Montclair on a nine mile route. With several stops for picture-taking, the ride lasted over an hour, meaning it wasn’t very much of a cardio workout. Still it was quite fun and merry, at least it was until I dropped my camera and broke it. It is possible the camera can be fixed. I’ll know in the coming days when my blood pressure drops sufficiently to attempt a repair.
I have used the handy WordPress Gallery feature to display this year’s images. Just click on any one of them and slide show begins. Here’s wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas!
