A Day to Ride





I took this photo while on a motorcycle trip to Apalachicola, Florida, about 150 miles from our home. We were traveling about 55 mph. Apalachicola is a historic fishing village on the coast of the Florida panhandle where the Apalachicola River empties into the Gulf of Mexico. It is in a part of the state that has been slow to develop, but it is beginning to boom. It was a beautiful ride through back roads and miles and miles of pine forests. In the photo, you can see a few clouds in the sky; it was a perfect day!

I'll be out of town this weekend and out of touch, but I will visit as many as possible when I return. I love the photos. Thanks Wom Tigley. For more Skywatch photos, visit Wiggers World

I have never been to this part of Florida. I guess I am sad that it is not being developed and will lose some of that mystery. I like your photo of the area and what a neat way to tour. Motorcycles.

Apalachicola is such a unique and lovely town. I guess some won't be satisfied until Florida is fully developed and places like this are just memories. Great photo.

Fabulous catch! The earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books. mine's up too, hope you'll visit mine.
