We got out for another ride today after several days of inactivity. After going a little further still, we stopped at our usual (as of late) spot for a picnic lunch. Today, I decided to try a panorama. The above is a total of nine photos stitched together. I can see too many stitch borders for my liking, but it I enjoyed the process if not the result. While I don't think the result is that bad, the anal-perfectionist side of me wants to do better. The real version of this stitch is about 30" wide by 5" high. That's the problem with panoramas, and then when you reduce it to screen and blog width, it all looks rather miniscule, and one wonders why one bothers.
Although it was a cool, breezy day, we bettered our previous best by 10k and managed to do 60k in all. We tried a new route along country, but paved, roads and enjoyed ourselves a lot. The trouble with continually extending our mileage is that it eats more and more time. I resemble a chirpy morning person not in the least, but I managed to hit the road by ten o'clock today, and I am toying with an even earlier start tomorrow.
This cycling addiction, along with the spring need for attention to gardens, and our recent round of decorating has taken the keen edge off blogging it seems. I feel as though my posts have been much less than meaningful lately, but something has to give. And even though it often becomes a quick scan, I am still reading your posts &mdash not commenting as I should but reading nonetheless.
