Not many more of these...


When I asked Joan what she wanted to do today, she said, "Let's walk up to the store, stop for lunch at the Chinese restaurant, and get out on the scooters."

"So, you're saying you have a plan?"  ;-)

It was still when we walked up to the scooters - made us both put off wearing jackets (but, we brought 'em)...


We talked about what roads we wanted to ride... we may get another day of riding in before we start packing up.  I have to say, the roads on San Juan Island, and the whole area, have been some of the most fun we've had since we bought the scooters... lots of fun riding options.

Today, I decided to try something different, photographically: I put a telephoto zoom on the DSLR.  Normally, I use a wide angle zoom or the GoPro (which is really wide angle).  The wide views expand what you see, the tele compresses the perspective.  I knew it would be harder to get the subject framed right with the longer lens (shooting without looking through the viewfinder), as well as camera-shake from hand-holding (with one hand) the camera.

I was pleasantly surprised...





Yeah, I am liking the perspective...





Last week, the island was hopping - LOTS of people.  This week, the roads seemed less populated.  We rode some of our favorite roads twice! 

Another beautiful day...

Well... a different perspective. I didn't show the ones where I completely missed the road, much less the scooter. ;-)
