Funnily enough, as i stretched out and warmed up I began to feel pretty good on the ol' blue pig, although the tailwind was helping to be sure. I went downtown for some not-challenging, flat miles and into Portland, still with the tailwind. Once at Shawnee I decided to come back via as much Riverwalk as I could.
|Riverwalk wet ambience|
|Cockpit. Note garmin500, iPod wire, stored RBW hat, strapless Croc.|
|Bleriot with nice, high bars|
|"C'mon, how closed can it be?"|
|First 20ft of "good" part of Riverwalk. Game over.|
|Old store to left, old brick street center, and RR tracks on right, ones which cross the river via a bridge *with* car lanes.|
I finished up with a trip up the Beargrass Trail where I saw some nice rainy day KY fauna, including lots of birds. Below are a couple pics snapped.
|Very big turtle on the far bank.|
|Blue Heron being elusive. Don't know if it's Ol'Blue. This one might have been a juvenile, as its coloring was mottled and muted. Took me a while and several shots to get this.|
