..because a cold front passed through and we are getting some cooler weather a bit earlier than normal. The lows dipped just below 70 degrees F on our front porch, so that almost ranks a ‘cold’ here this time of the year. With the front came some strong northerly winds, which I really have to ‘lean into’ as I bicycle north out of town on Route 24. Of course, the pay off comes on the way back when I can fly down the road and feel super strong and full of energy…ha! A tail wind will do that to you. On my ride I go across “No. 4” which is a name for this part of the coast that dates back to before Florida was a state. The territory was broken down into a whole bunch of rather arbitrary rectangular Military Districts, and this one was No. 4 – a name which still sticks, and is usually applied to the bridge that runs across the Gulf here. I am posting this photos because it is an ordinary one and I think it pretty much conveys how gorgeous the area can look. I purposely desaturated the colors and tried to have the photo resemble the landscape as much as possible. Too bad the old Agfa color film isn’t around any more.
