Another beautifully warm morning with great colors splashing across the sky.

It seemed like a normal Spring sunrise… clear skies & beautiful colors.
But the real fun was the splashing & crashing waves along the lakefront.

And then the splashing fun began as I got to the edge of the Lakefront.

A beautiful morning ride with a slight chill in the air. But the sky is clear and sun’s gonna warm it up quick today… I hope. Might need to get out for another ride this afternoon after some quality studio time?!

And her she is… the Big Debut of the NEW BIKE.
Still considering if she needs a name or not… any ideas??
The top two contenders so far are… “Scarlet Don’t-Care-A”… or “The Crimson Ride.”

Thoughts???

It’s never a good thing when you take your bike into the shop for a spring tune-up, and they give it back to you in two pieces!!! Not good… but the chocolate frozen custard that followed shortly helped a bit.

Crisp & clear, not a cloud in the sky…. with a definite hint of Spring in the air.

And by “sunrise” I really mean “clouded glow.” The clouds were moving fast through the City this morning. Waves of clouds rolling through. Great tailwinds for the second half of my ride… and rain three blocks from home!

A beautifully warm & colorful sky this morning. The clouds were there to splash the sky in reds & blues. An incredible sunrise… but then the clouds blocked the sun as it continued to rise. Still warm, but a bit cloudy.

What a difference a day makes… with calmer waters, fewer clouds and colorful skies.

Flooded beach… with a boardwalk to nowhere….

After a week of rain & storms it was so great to see the sun today.
Even if it had to be seen “between” the crashing waves!

A cloudy start to a warm day in Chicago. Unfortunately, the battle between clouds & sun didn’t play out so well… with the clouds “winning” by not allowing the sun to break through with a splash of color.
