Congrat's Chris

Hi all,

After a long nap and a couple of chocolate chip cookies...;-) I wanted to send a note to thank you for your donations to the MS150 Ride. We beat our goal and raised $1,260!!!

We rolled out Saturday morning at 8:00 and finished 65 miles under a partly sunny, overcast sky....PERFECT weather for a ride! The event was very well organized and SAGed with breakfast, lunch, & dinner provided. They had live muzak and Lisa's dogs were in heaven running about the grounds. The ride was beautiful, even made our way across the Georgia/Alabama state line for a few miles. The first 30 miles were gently rolling hills with about 1,000 ft elevation change but the remaining 35 were up and down with an elevation change of 2,000 ft. Needles to say, we crashed at the pool in the afternoon.

Today we rolled again at 8:00 and cruised through 25 miles under grey skies finishing just before some spitting rain started.

It was a great weekend but most of all because of your generosity we raised money to help our friends, family, and neighbors who suffer with MS.

Thank you for the support!!

South Fork, Long Island

I was driving out to Orient Point to catch the ferry to Rhode Island when I passed this nursery.
I am so glad I turned around to get photos. There a so many great shots, I don't know what to paint first!!!

A few photos from the Adirondacks, Mystic CT and Mount Gretna PA

After the show in Sryacuse, I spent a few days in the Adirondack nature preserve cycling and kayaking. This is one of the rivers I spent a few hours paddling along. This was one of the calmer of the rivers in the area. Such a nice way to spend the afternoon.

This truck is resting just outside a nursery in Niantic CT. I have been meaning to snap a photo for years and finally stopped my last day in the area. It's going to make a fun painting.
You never know what you are going to come across in Lancaster PA. Check out this Amish plowing team.
While out cycling in Mount Gretna, I came across the beautiful scenes. I think the one above will make a beautiful painting. It will be a challenge for me to capture the foggy atmosphere, but it invokes such a sense of peace, I have to give it a shot.
