Sundown(er).

Posted on
Of course I had to take a picture…

Of a different kind.

A motorbike ride at sundown/sunset.

Yes, that’s the way to go!!

It has been hot lately – very hot, just in case you missed my previous post. The one very fortunate thing, is that in the evenings it cools down to livable temperatures – so far it has anyway, it might still change. But this post is not about heat. ( I heard that sigh of relief! )

Yesterday afternoon/evening, we went for a ride on the GS (BMW GS, a ‘touring’ bike, for those of you who don’t know) Not very far – to McGregor, a nearby town and back. We did that because my SO did it the evening before, and he wanted to show me the beauty out there when the sun goes down.

The light that changes, the last rays hitting the mountains and vineyards, the quiet that comes with the sun setting. It was truly magic. I loved every single moment of it.

I wonder if he (my SO) realizes that he has now started something that will have to continue, because I loved it so much? It doesn’t have to happen every day, but it will have to happen often.

There really is nothing that compares to sitting on the back of a motorbike, cruising along, and experiencing your surroundings first hand, not through a closed car window with the aircon on. Especially late in the day, when it has started cooling down. Like I said – magic.

This song kept popping into my head as we cruised along…

So, imagine if you can, sitting on a bike, cruising along, the cool air against your skin, the light fading, and this ↑ song playing – like in a movie, you know? 😉

Happy weekend to you all!!!

Summer wine.

The weekend is here.

Wasn’t it just the weekend? Some days time flies, others it feels like a day has 48 hours. This week has flown by.

This has been one of my all time favourite songs for years now, and warm, end-of-summer days like today make me think of it. It feels like the perfect way to end a week. If you enjoy this version, give the Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood version a listen too, and let me know which one you prefer.

I don’t have much to say today, other than enjoy the music.

CHEERS friends, hope your weekend is a good one! 🙂
