I aimed to explore beaches by bike at such a pace that would allow me to also relax and read books. I love a little bit of alliteration so I also ended up exploring boats, bridges, barns, beers and barreled beverages, bakeries, bonfires, Bald Eagles, Bull Kelp, and beauty along these byways, sometimes with buddies.
Enjoy the view. Enjoy the Sound.

2020 marks the 15th anniversary of publishing my first place-based poem with the Poetry on Buses program. Here is the poem called Bull Kelp.
She is bull kelp / long and thin with wild hair / ambered by the sun, / curled by the brine.
She dances at the shore / on boulders shaped liked shoulders of elephants. / The barnacled skin smoothed by lapping tides.
Underfoot the rockweed crackles / with applause.
Best spots to bike camp.
thanks for making memories with me along parts of the journey
