This morning I woke up with a little more vigour then normal, so I decided a scenic bike ride was in order. I didn't really have any particular destination, so I loaded up my camera gear and just pointed my bike towards the water (not hard to do here in Victoria). I ended up riding by Craigdarroch Castle, which, even though I knew existed, I had surprisingly never seen. Even though I am quite out of shape, I found riding a bike much better for exploring then a car. A car can be cumbersome to park in some spots in Victoria. Being able to quickly stop and snap a photo was very handy. I will definitely be heading out to do this again sometime soon.
