Last Thursday was such a nice day (weather wise) which is partly why I decided to hop on my bike and ride somewhere. I packed my camera and while doing so made the final decision to go to the waterfront, though earlier I was open to riding anywhere, I just wanted to take photos. I very much enjoyed the ride down to the river from my house, (which is about a 6 mile ride, mostly down hill.) After arriving there I didn't have much time for photos seeing as the light was fading quickly behind the west hills, I shot what I could, packed up and headed home. The ride back was a bit of a work out because it's up hill for about 72 blocks. But it was relaxing at the same time; the light had mostly disappeared and I was riding in the cool spring evening air which cooled me down. It was an enjoyable bike ride and I am happy with the end result of the photos. I'm glad spring is here. :) And I am glad I live in Portland!
