    Winter Solstice Ride!

    Oh boy, winter is finally here.

    Let's dress for it and go for a ride.

    Ah what the heck, lets paddle too!

    Where is my egg nog?

    BTW the forecast high for tomorrow is 67f, I guess winter doesn't last long around here!

    Man, that's pretty.

    It's especially nice to see a blue sky.

    It was gray in PHX today, still a nice day for a ride.

    Ain't migrating great, MB1?

    I highly recommend it.

    I had to wear knickers and a jacket, myself. Still no booties or long fingered gloves, yet. and I am a wimp as far as weather goes.

    Love the pictures, wish I had a camera small enuf to tote along.

    It sure looks like a great day, a paddle, a ride no doubt a hot shower and lunch.

    I think that would be nirvana for me right now, thanks for sharing photos.

    As a native of Winter Haven, I can assure you that when the wind whips in the early morning with all the moisture in the air, it can indeed, feel cold....that aside, there is a reason why it's the Sunshine State. Blue skies, blue skies...a world of difference between Atl and central Fla.

    Wait a minute! It's 67F and you're dressed in tights, jacket and balaclava? OMG!
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    OOPS! I reread your post & it said 67F was forecast for tomorrow. My bad. Nevertheless, when I dress the way Miss M is in your photos, it's usually in the mid 20s. I don't even wear booties until it goes below 32F.

    Great, we're covered in ice and have snow showers right now.

    I'm finally noticing the ghost kayak in your shots. Cool.
