Vespa on a Sunny Day
The sun finally came out and if it weren't for the wind I could almost believe it was spring. I'm tired of winter and riding has become a chore in itself of late. So it was nice to wander around on the scooter, collect some mud under the fenders and just live under a blue sky while it lasts. Still some snow and ice around in the shadows or on the mountains but nothing to worry about on the road save for the distracted drivers, whitetail deer, and copious amounts of gravel collected at every intersection or other place requiring turns.
I took the day off and caught myself thinking it was Saturday a few times since it's rare to be out in the middle of the day on the Vespa otherwise. In a few more weeks it will be time to shed the winter tires and get back to the warm weather set up. Won't be long until I'll see green in place of all the orange and brown.
Sky clouded up in the middle of the afternoon dropping me back into that gray, twilight world I've become accustomed to. A last swing through town to pick up some chocolate at the Boalsburg Chocolate Company. A fitting end to a relaxed day.
Planned to take Junior to the park to play ball but he was zonked out from an earlier outing. I think the smart choice would be to recline on the couch and do nothing. It is a vacation day after all.
Maybe tomorrow will be more productive.
