Day 4: Chitty Chitty Bike Bike, Cycling , Cows, Covered Bridges, Chocolate

A perfect  day! cycling, fresh air, fresh water and chocolate! By the way, during the week our tandem bike, a semi-recumbent Viewpoint built by Bilenky, was christened by LK with a very appropriate name: Chitty Chitty Bike Bike. By Day #4, there was no changing the name.  So the day moved forward and so too did Chitty Chitty Bike Bike.  
Then came the cow.  This cow didn't know what to make out of Chitty Chitty Bike Bike. Perhaps she thought we were another cow approaching a little too quickly along the bike path for her pace. She eyed us cautiosly.  Assured that the cow was a cow and not a bull (duh), Chitty Chitty Bike Bike wheeled on!

and sightings of Angelica, (Angelica atropurpurea) in the Parsley family along the stream banks on the side of the road...These plants were 5 to 7 feet tall, and the crowns the size of a beach ball! It may be a weed but it was beautiful!
