Bainbridge Island Bike Ride

After getting scared off from backpacking on Monday and Tuesday by a bad weather report I left on an overnight bike trip to Bainbridge Island on Wednesday.

Bainbridge Island isn't far from home but is the fastest way I know to get a half a world away.

"Without going out of your door, You can know the ways of the world. Without peeping through your window, you can see the Way of Heaven. The farther you go, The less you know. Thus, the Sage knows without traveling, Sees without looking, And achieves without struggle." Lao Tse.

And it seems like there were some other people who had the same idea I did...

Everybody likes to stare out over the water... who needs cell phones, text messages, or cable TV?

...especially when you've got a fishing pole.

... or a sunset to watch.
