Although going downtown provides the most variety, most of my rides are right around the neighbourhood here, on one of two streets that are safe to drive down. Neither of them have much if any in the way of sidewalks. I feel I've photographed everything that's worthwhile, but I keep trying to find interesting things to share.

You may remember I posted the picture at the end of this post, of the new wheelchair accessible sidewalk that was added to the new bridge downtown. I commented at the time that it would open up the entire far side of the harbour for me to explore. But I'm sad and disappointed to say that this is not actually the case.
Blogger and Microsoft have messed things up again, changing both some of Blogger's format and Microsoft's photo uploading process. Blogger again loaded up all my photos in reverse order, so what was a ride up from the harbour has become a ride down to the harbour. And you'll have to wait for the end to learn about the sidewalk to nowhere.
Heading down the hill I saw that three loads of big blue pipes had been dropped off on the south side of Nelson Street in preparation for construction to come.
There were remnants of an asphalt path in places, badly eroded on one side and too narrow for a wheelchair, making it quite unsafe in places. I finally gave up, rode back on the grass and across the bridge to get home My dreams of exploring the far side of the harbour are dashed!

Well here we are again, continuing my exploration in Thornbury, the next little town, with a reputation for being rather posh, to the east of us. Up on the old railway bridge I got nice views upstream and down, watching for any more fishermen.

After riding out to the end of the road by the small Harbour Master's office, I turned around and headed back, planning to go right up out of the harbour to ride across the old railway bridge, now part of the Georgian Trail.

I enjoyed a different adventure the other day, visiting Thornbury harbour. Mrs. F.G. had an appointment in Thornbury and she suggested she could take me along but drop me off down at the harbour. I enjoyed an hour's look around and I did behave myself!
