Island bicycle.

Last week we went to Chincoteague and Asseteague island's. Here we are taking a break on the wildlife loop, it is closed to car traffic until 3:30 PM every day. The area behind us is a salt marsh that is a stop over for many different birds. We enjoyed watching a family of bald eagles going about their daily routine every day. We also saw a large turtle(shell was about 2 1/2 feet long), which I believe was a snapping turtle, in the canal. The islands are very bicycle friendly with bicycle lanes marked and 15MPH speed limit which is strictly enforced by the police. JoAnne did some running, I did not as I am still giving my foot a break. I am doing more bicycling but I still get a few 5k's in each week.
