    Maine Early Spring Commute

    Morning was grey and cloudy.

    1) Head of Somes Sound this morning. High tide.

    2) Shot of Duck Brook from above on a bridge. (Props for the local whitewater canoe racers racing today on another stream. Gotta be bold to canoe in the cold.)

    3) My crosshairs at Duck Brook Bridge. All granite built by the Rockefeller Family for the National Park. One of several, all architecturally different.

    4) Park road with another Rockefeller Bridge. Some may remember this same shot from another ride report earlier in the year with much more snow.

    The ride home

    Evening ride home. Sky cleared about a half hour before leaving work and I had a lovely ride home.

    1)Looking across at Cadillac Mt. from the park loop road. Loop road runs to the top for a nice climb with spectacular views. Future ride report.

    2) Somes sound this evening. Mid/Low tide.

    3) Sunset on the bike at Long Pond, 100 yards from home. This is a great spot to take a dip and rinse off after a hot summer ride.

    Great pics. You really nail those blues. An instant candidate for next year's Kato Awards.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    Nice pictures, and it must be great living by that lake.

    But there's no snow in spring.

    That last pic is a beaut. Nice stuff.

    Didn't you people get the memo? Like, it's Spring already...lose the snow.

    Great shots of some beautiful country. Must be a great place to ride--when the roads are clear.
