A morning ride before work
is like a stolen kiss before detention.
Today is the last day of legislative session and the past few weeks have been the busiest of the whole year, filled with late nights. Fortunately, I've been able to get out most mornings before going into the office and other than the past couple of days when it's been raining (and I'd rather get a few hours sleep than try to squeeze in a ride), these spring mornings have been beautiful.
So herewith is a short sampling of a few of the kisses I've stolen during these final busy days...
Foot-of-Main, Connecticut River, Essex
Otter Cove, Old Saybrook
Essex Town Dock
North Cove, Old Saybrook
Harvey's Beach, Old Saybrook
Steamboat Dock, Essex
All you morning folks know very well the joy of getting up with the sun, but it's a new experience for this night owl. But given my schedule lately, the early morning is the only - and often the best - time to ride. Nevertheless, we adjourn at midnight tonight and I'm looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow. With session over, I won't have to seize my opportunities so early in the day and I get (almost) as much pleasure out of sunsets than sunrises.
And as you can see, those kissess can be just as sweet. . .
