Saturday In The Park…I Think I Was The 4th of July…I Broke My Record Today!

Hey Fellow Bloggers!

Saturday turned out to be a fantastic day! When I first woke up in the morning I felt a bit lethargic and very bloated. I have been eating everything in site the last few days (or should I say…late at night and throughout the entire night). I am such a nocturnal eater and you would be at awe with the amount of food I can eat in just one night and it usually I will admit …isnot healthy food! In the mornings of late I pay for my bad habit! I could just easily just lay back down on the couch and watch Netflix all day with hopes that my bloating would just go away..but if I did this..I guarentee you, I would soon wrigh 400 pounds! Nope…not me! I’ve got to be active to offset my extreme eating habits. It’s a vicious cycle for me! Always has been, I’ll admit!

Ok…so it’s Saturday and there is something I wanted to do, but been putting it off. I wanted to see if I could break my record of pedaling 65 miles in one day. So I decided today would be as good as any to hopefully do it!

So after getting my act together, I decided to pedal from my condo to downtown St Petersburg and after riding around there for a while I would continue on my ride to the Fort Desoto State Park near Tierra Verde, Florida to check it out. Since I am going a round about way of getting there, I will pedal about 40 miles just to get there and then after pedaling around the park for 10 to 15 miles I would begin heading back to my condo which would be about another 35 miles. All in all I would pedal that day (the Lord willing) about 85 miles or about 140 Kms for you guys on the metric system!

So here goes….enjoy the ride with me!

Further down in this blog, I have thrown in a little bit of nostalgia for you all in the 50 to 70 years age group. I had to set the theme just before pedaling into the park. Hope this nostalgia doesn’t give you the “ear bug” syndrome for the rest of your day! HaHa!

South-southwest of St. Petersburg, Florida, Fort De Soto Park is a park operated by Pinellas County on five offshore keys, or islands: Madelaine Key, St. Jean Key, St. Christopher Key, Bonne Fortune Key and the main island, Mullet Key. The keys are connected by either bridge or causeway. Wikipedia

So here I wind the clock back a bit to your earlier years in life! Enjoy!

Ok…you are now in for a real treat. An impromptu pleasant diversion off my course. Wait until you see these beautiful mansions that I stumbled upon as I began pedaling back towards home. Enjoy the next two videos! It must be nice ti be able to live here!

Ok..Lastly, I am not usually one to get political or to discuss something controversial, but I had to do a quick commentary about the current USA havoc on-going! How quickly we forget Covid-19 and now focus our attention to a new crisis in the USA!

Ok….now back home and I am happy to report that I achieved my day’s goal! Left 10:30 am from my condo and returned back home at close to 6:00 pm. So pedaled about 7 to 7 1/2 hours straight (with only monimsl stops) and covered 85 miles during today’s ride! Yay!

Ok…now ready for a cold beer! LoL Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
