Weekend Field Trip-Lake Marie Bike Path

With the temps starting to climb,
we decided to get in a family bike ride
before summer hits head on
(that's about April 25th here).

We headed to Dundee, a little town about 8 miles from here.

This was the first time we'd been to this park.
There were several lakes to enjoy while touring on the bike path.

Plenty of wildlife made the ride that much more interesting.

One of the few shady areas was accompanied 
by a comfortable spot to have a picnic lunch.

Even the sky managed to put on a show for us.

The entire ride took only minutes,
but it felt good to be out and about in nature's bounty.

We weren't alone in relishing the tranquil surroundings.

This amazing structure must have been a foot off the ground
and two feet in diameter.
Someone's been busy!

One lone bridge greeted us as we made our way around.

We noticed an unusual home from a distance.
We had to see it a bit closer.

What a quirky looking house.
You just know the occupants dance to their own beat.
Can't say that's a bad thing.

Hope you have some new places to explore with your family soon!
