We spent an extended Easter weekend (March 29-April 1) at Chincoteague, Virginia. We brought our folding bicycles with us, intending to ride them all over Assateague Island. After removing the bicycles from their carrying bags, unfolding them, and adjusting the seats we went for a short bicycle ride soon after arriving in Chincoteague. Best Western Chincoteague Island is the closest hotel to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. We rode our bicycles almost to the refuge entrance, a distance of about 1/2 mile.
On the way to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, there is a very nice view of the Assateague Channel.
Returning to the hotel, we ditched the bicycles and drove to Assateague Island.
This is where our bicycles stayed for the remainder of our vacation. I did not have the leg strength or the stamina to ride the bicycle. Riding caused extreme pain in my knees. I don’t know what changed to cause the pain, but bicycling was no longer a fun activity for me.
My name is Linda. I am happily married to Bob, whom I married in September 1998. We have a daughter (my stepdaughter), who blessed Bob and me with twin granddaughters in May 2012.
My interests include spending time with my family and friends, riding the motorcycle with my husband, bowling, bicycling, walking, attending festivals, photography and travel.
I love taking photographs. I am a hobbyist photographer. My camera of choice is a mirrorless interchangeable lens Olympus camera.
I love to travel as well. I lived in Germany for almost 3 years, while in the Army, and visited many European countries. I have toured Europe two additional times since returning stateside. I lived in Australia for 3 months. I vacationed in the Bahamas (Nassau) one time. I would like to see more of the U.S., as well as return to Europe. I wouldn’t mind seeing the world!
I like all types of movies — comedy, romance, action, thriller and horror.
My favorite type of music would have to be country, judging by the fact that my CD collection contains mostly country artists such as Alabama, Clint Black, Garth Brooks, George Strait and more. I like music by Green Day, 3 Doors Down, and Matchbox 20 too.
I tend to read romance novels, although I enjoy a good horror every now and then. My favorite romance writers include Belva Plain, Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks, Danielle Steel, Robert James Waller, and Phyliss A. Whitney. My favorite horror writers are Stephen King and John Saul.
