Birthday bike ride

March 19, 2009

My birthday is always awesome, since it’s my birthday, but this year was one of the best!!!  Really.  We had a crazy feast at Penny Cluse, including a big fruit plate and also some french toast with a candle in it, and (double strength) coffee, stopped to accept some presents, and then we biked to Shelburne Farms.

Biking to Shelburne is not that bad!  If you take the bike path all the way to Oakledge, you can take Industrial Ave and the big box stores back lots (Frannie O’s was packed at 11:30 when we rode by) all the way to the Palace 9.  From there, it’s only a couple of big blocks of soulless car dealerships, failed restaurants, and screaming traffic until you can take a right on Shelburne Bay road.


It took us under an hour to get to the farm, where we parked our bikes and bought some cheese.  Then we walked through the farm barn yard and saw some majestic chickens.


We hiked up through their sugarbush and stole some sap, and then hiked down to the shore!


It was extremely spring, and almost all the ice was gone.  All that was left was this sparkly ice angel.


We skipped some rocks.  I realized that I was wearing my superhero outfit.  It’s just the most comfortable!


And then finally we biked home and had a homemade pizza party.  I still wish it was Tuesday!
