The stranger did not lodge in the street: but I opened my doors to the traveler...Job 31:32

-------------------------

Before opening the door

To a grocery store..

I captured two strangers

In my photo shot

From the parking lot...

Each had a recumbent bike

The covered seats

Where they sat and lodged

Were not exactly alike.

Traffic they may have dodged

Pedaling on the busy streets,

But here they were carefree

Traveling merrily on their way

With new adventures to see

Embracing life this day.

Poetry by me AJP

I shot this image in May of 2008 and the couple almost got away out of range of my camera but I caught up with them:) My husband and I went grocery shopping at this same place today, and it brought back memories of this picture which I am just now posting for the Transportation Theme.

    Recumbent bicycles are so much easier on the body to ride than a standard bicycle. This is a great photo of a couple of guys out for a ride!

    Thank you for the comments...The rider on the other side of the man with the long hair, Ann was a lady. They might have been husband & wife.
