Just a few more photos


“A photograph is a most important document, and there is nothing more damning to go down to posterity than a silly, foolish smile caught and fixed forever.”
Mark Twain, 1835-1910

With your forbearance, here are a few more snapshots culled from the images posted by fellow riders since completion of our cross-country bike ride on Nov. 21.
They include one of myself with a “silly, foolish smile,” a curious lizard, Kami’s graceful finish to the ride in St. Augustine and son Matt with a bottle of medicinal champagne.
I’ve also included one of a meteorologist on the Weather Channel tracking Hurricane Ida.
We all became intensely interested in the Weather Channel as we passed through southern Mississippi and Alabama because of a late-season storm called Ida brewing in the Gulf of Mexico. We took shelter at a Days Inn in Mobile, Ala. Ida, at first a Category-2 hurricane, was downgraded to a tropical storm as she sloshed through Mobile Bay in the early hours of Nov. 10 as we lay asleep in the warm, dry motel.

Kami was so excited to see her mother welcoming her in St. Augustine that she toppled from her bike. Mary Ellen skips out of the way as sons Thomas and Matt, with a medicinal bottle of champagne, rush to Kami's aid. Photo by Felix Greiner and Jennifer Prasiswa
