newport back bay
...for old hangouts. newport back bay is an amazing nature area/ preserve within walking distance of our old house that we never quite took enough advantage of while we could. now that we're on the other side of town, it's a little bit more of a production getting over there. picture a precarious looking bike rack tied to the car and two bikes hanging on for dear life.
once we get out there, though, man. it is beautiful. walkers, runners, bikers, horse riders and dog walkers all around. trails for everyone, and a pleasant downhill stretch where you feel like you're flying.
it's the uphill stretch getting back to the car that i could do without. it gets steeper every. single. time. and my old lady lungs just can't take it.
