IT'S NOT UNCOMMON to encounter friendly travelers sharing the trails and enjoying a lovely sunny day. On those occasions when we pause to chat, we might exchange antidotes and learn something about the parklands we are visiting. This lady explained to us that her mare truly enjoys the flowers and wildlife along the trails. Perceptive horse sense, maybe?
Other times we encounter entire families out for an afternoon of adventure, complete with color-coordinated bikes, matching helmets and shoes, and training wheels. Exciting times!
And if we are lucky, we will occasionally see the ultimate "fancy" traveler. This coordinated outfit has matching pink bike and helmet (with a colorful tiara), matching flowers and shirt, streams and banners, and her favorite doll along for the ride. Maybe I should coordinate my outfits too!
