The forecast was a balmy humid day in store for us on the SouthCoast of Massachusetts. A bike ride around the area beaches was just the thing to beat the heat. It’s a few short 6 or 7 miles to the beaches of New Bedford. The wind was tolerable and so was the humidity. Birds have been squawking to get my attention and posing for photos lately. They usually don’t disappoint. An easy 17 mile bike ride with my camera made me happy as a clam at high tide.
