Playing Hat Hooky - A Ride to Corkum's Island

When you have a sixty hat wholesale order to ship out in two days and you still need to make ten, label them, write an invoice and box them up, there is only one thing to do...go for a bike ride. I just really don't have the personality for missing out on summer.

Today I hopped on my bike, followed the harbour out of town and went to Corkum's Island. I'll never get over the beauty of this place.

On one side of the road you have the ocean and on the other side of the road you have the woods.  It's a truly amazing scent cocktail. 

I have been on my bike a lot lately.  last year I let summer get away from me and I really can't do that again.  This year I'm making up for lost time. Being alone on these little jaunts, I tend to talk to myself.  I seem to say, "unbelievable" a lot.  The beauty is simply unbelievable.

I also seem to say, "No F-ing way." quite a bit There's no way to avoid the hills.  To get from point A to point B there's constant up and down.

But there's always a reward at the top. This is the million dollar view of Lunenburg from the  Golf course.
 As I was standing at the side of the road taking this photo, there were a few tourists doing the same. I was tempted to tell them that I actually live here and I have been taking this same photo for eight years.  It never gets old.

Wonderful view and I bet this ride is going to be so much fun too. Can't wait to have a ride on this beautiful ship.
