I took my regular route along the ocean, past Henlopen Acres and North Shores to Gordon's Pond. A new, three-mile walking and bike path had been completed since my last trip. The pond was full of migrating birds, but without binoculars, I could not identify them. The first morning I rode out, other bikers and walkers used the trail. The second morning, wind speeds increased and pushed my bike sideways, and few were out. I rode farther than usual but made it back to town before the rain began.
