We are in the dog days of summer at Hermoso Castillo with temperatures soaring into the stratosphere, well beyond the roasting ancho chilies on asphalt mark. Here in Arizona during the second half of summer we have the monsoon season which dumps humidity into the pot with those high temps making inside air conditioning Queenie and her court’s very best friend.
Alas, the combo platter of extreme heat and humidity put a halt to our early morning bike rides for August and part of September.
Longing for a bike ride and flipping through snaps, it occurred to me that I had not shared photos of the new bikes Queenie and Honey Man gifted each other for our birthdays/anniversary.
This is my fabooo blue bike, complete with a bicycle basket lined with puppy paws in honor of the Delicious. It’s ever so girlish don’t you think.
I even found a bike helmet that matches, styling!
Here is Honey Man’s bike, very manly indeed. Queenie offered to buy him a basket but all Honey Man did was laugh :o)
We enjoy riding along the canals in our area which bypasses the stress of navigating car traffic.
Along our route you will find several horse properties
And a farm with a whole menagerie including a herd of goats
Yes, peacocks! On that day all the boys were showing all their fine feathers.
I miss my morning bike rides. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that the triple digit heat will relent so Queenie and her Honey Man can hit the trails once again.
