Jake is happy with us again.
We took him riding on Sunday afternoon. And we stopped at a park. And at a Tim Hortons. And he had a Timbit. We didn’t intentionally suck up to him, but after last weekend, I admit, it worked out rather well.
The sun finally came out Sunday afternoon. We were planning an afternoon of outdoor projects until I looked up and saw a very tiny patch of blue sky. That was all it took for me to badger Steve into going riding (and it honestly didn’t take much persuasion).
We decided to ride toward the clearing sky, so we headed through Chelsea and Greenfield, a great road, and then down to Liverpool. There’s a wonderful stretch of brand new pavement there – it was kind of like riding heaven.
Our first stop was the park in Milton. It’s along the Mersey River. For the life of me, I can’t recall the name right now, but it’s a wonderful spot. Jake romped around on the grass, climbed over some rocks and stared at the river which was flowing rapidly after all the rain we’ve had. It was really beyond beautiful there.
Then we took one of my favourite roads down to Liverpool. The road itself is in rough shape, but the views of the Mersey River and the properties along it are stunning. I love that ride.
After a stop, a snack and a chat at Tims, we headed out through Brooklyn (I’m fond of that twisty stretch of road too), onto the highway until the Voglers Cove exit, then back to Bridgewater along the ocean and the LaHave River.
Sigh. It was a great afternoon for all of us.
