This morning I stepped outside, felt the warm air and sun on my face, and had a single thought: Today is the perfect day for a bike ride.
So when lunchtime rolled around, I grabbed a light jacket, pulled on my tennis shoes, and tied my hair back. Grabbing my keys, I opened the door and … realized that I couldn’t get to my bike. You see, my bike is in the garage, and we don’t have access to the garage from inside the house. The only way in is to go outside and open the garage door. With the garage door opener. The one my husband drove away with when he left for work.
Not to be deterred from the beautiful weather, I revised my plans. I quickly scanned the map for a walking route that would fit into a reasonable lunch break and still take me somewhere new. That’s when I noticed the walking path that goes around Bodlondeb Woods, along River Conwy:
It ended up being the perfect place to walk. I made a two-mile loop, meandering a bit by the water and quickly escaping the tourists by taking a side street when I got back into town. And I made a mental note to return to Bodlondeb Woods soon to check out some of the trails that criss-cross through there.
