I’ve turned 50 and now want to squeeze in all the fun I can (while I still can)! My husband and I are also raising two incredible sons who happen to be autistic. I also have a 34 year old, self sufficient, beautiful daughter. We don’t always have a lot of free time, but we love to travel when we can and we love food, although I have to be creative as both boys have dairy, egg, peanut and tree nut allergies. But we keep movin’ on!

A Gaggle of Geese, A Pair of Swans and A Great Blue Heron
Blackstone River at the Manville Dam in Lincoln
Blackstone River in Northern Rhode Island hosts a variety of RI wildlife. I have been biking the route about 3 days a
week, anywhere from 17-22 miles per day.
I always grab my Fuji Fine Pix because it is lightweight and has a 30x zoom.
of Canadian Geese are littered throughout the 10 mile part of the path I ride and
there are babies galore this spring.
Mother Geese keep a watchful eye on their goslings. They even run and hiss at the bikers as we
pass, although I have noticed these moms have become less aggressive as the
goslings get bigger.
pairs of swans are also scattered along the path. They are so beautiful as they swim by. I always stop to take a photo.
Great Blue Heron is my favorite bird on the bike path. Watching them forage for their meal is so
fascinating for this city girl. They
stand in water like statues and I have watched them wait for 10-15 minutes
without moving before plucking an unlucky frog, fish or river rat from the
Patiently Waiting, Perfectly Still
Can't wait to see what else I'll see the next time I ride!
