It’s been a while since I hopped on the bike and rode 20ish km, so today—since it was gorgeous out and all the gravel I’ve got is already in place and tamped—I did just that.Continue reading “September Bike Ride”

I pulled up at Chez Angela not long after a car accident. As I was preparing to leave, the ambulance pulled up and parked next to me, boxing me in, so I went back into the bakery and had a coffee to wait them out.
The cars involved are on the other side of the fire truck in the photo. I felt it would be bad form to wander around the site taking photos. Plus it was way warmer inside, sipping my coffee, than out in the street.
When I left, about ten minutes later, the police were still there, and two tow trucks had showed up.
As far as I could tell, no one was seriously hurt, but at least one of the vehicles was not in great shape.
A lovely early-summer morning, especially in the wake of the previous morning’s discovery.
