I am sitting currently in a small beach cafe looking out the window to the Atlantic Ocean.
Having what I call “second coffee” of the morning. I woke up early to head out on my bike for a leisure ride to Wrightsville Beach. I rode along the River to Sea trail passing mainly the ‘old man early riders’.
I have been working on creating up little adventures for myself. Half and full day rides where I am able to go and explore in and around Wilmington.
I miss waking up early heading out the on the road grabbing coffee and going off to explore new places. I miss being outdoors and out in nature.
I find it a little harder to do on my own. It’s not that I don’t like doing things on my own but I got used to and comfortable exploring with someone else. It was the new normal. It’s easier to call off an adventure when the weather isn’t ‘just right’ or sleep in a little longer because I’m staying up late to read.
Side note, I was reading another blog the other day and she had talked about ‘single things’. (Something you only do while single). I believe mine is reading. I mean, I read one book right after another. While in a partnership I don’t read so often. My days are filled up a little more. Reading fills in the spaces. Its a lot of re-reading Jane Austen. I have been working on the Bronte sisters but they are a little dark for my taking.
Well I think that does it for this post. I am going to go head out on the beach, explore some shops and bike a little more.
