roses on concrete

Downtown bound, bike on board. The rain held out. Only a November mist clung to the air, oddly refreshing as I pedalled on through. Along the seawall, a new favorite spot as the waves seem to lap towards you. Towards the raised concrete path winding, turning along the shore. I stopped. Rose bushes, so so many, cascading along their concrete barrier. Spilling over. The colours, soft scent, time for a water break.

Google maps is telling me that I covered 30 km yesterday! Interestingly, the last 5 km was much easier than the first 5, as my legs seemed to find new confidence in their ability to propel uphill. Mind over matter, I suppose.
