We took a time-out between (endless) boat projects and set out on our folding bikes to see what we could find on the other side of the Ship Channel.

Nothing but the sound of the animals going about their business. I love seeing the birds and other critters in their natural habitat. I could even hear a swarm of bees off the road at one point, but I never actually saw them as we sped hastily away...
We came across an unexpected camp site. Unusual... I didn't take any pictures out of respect but it looked like this wasn't a weekend thing.
|He's red, white, and BLUE!
We continued on and came across a snake, and a cute little patriotic crab. He skittered across my path and dove into the bushes before I could get the camera ready to snap. (I've never seen a crab like this before and would love to know what kind his is so please leave a comment if you know.)
We had our meager breakfast and went over one more rise before we called it a day.
