I took a day trip with my bike to my favorite island on Thursday. It was one of those gorgeous autumn days–bright, crisp, still and mild–and everything about my adventure was perfect. I took the hour plus ferry ride over to Vinalhaven, grabbed a cup of coffee and sat on a picnic table looking out at the water. I pedaled around and picnicked at the beach and stopped to dip by feet in the quarry water. I admired the autumn colors and gorgeous views like this one. I meandered and sat and then rode the ferry back into Rockland as the sun was setting. What a day!
