We rode the Pinellas Trail to Tarpon Springs, stopping at Spring Bayou. There were no manatees around this morning. I am riding my red bike, planning to leave it here and save the time and expense of disassembling, packing, sending and reassembling my bike every time I come here (and repeating the process to come home). I had it tweaked at the bike shop and now it fits as well as my other bike! I put the aerobars on it this morning.
We stopped at a building being renovated by Dianne's son Damon's friend Andy. It's going to be a great place! It used to be a church, and is now being repurposed into apartments. It overlooks Spring Bayou.
We biked to the business district of Tarpon Springs so Dianne could buy a new sponge--if you need sponges this is the place to go! There were decorated bikes all around town again. I still don't know why! We saw the same thing last year in February when I was here.
We had lunch at a little diner, and then headed home. We're both pleased that we rode 22 miles for our first time out. My hand is OK--less painful than yesterday. That tells me that while I may not be ready to use hand tools (like I did yesterday), I am ready to ride!
