Davis Bayou From the National Park Visitor’s Center

Ok. I’m going to admit it. I was scared to sleep outside, all by myself. I have been camping with other people–my dad, friends who I haven’t known well enough to say no to–but I really want to be able to go alone. I’ve got the biking part of the bike trip down–now I need to figure out how to sleep through the night so I can ride again the next day and get to the next place. So yeah, ten hours of sleep later, and the First Time is out of the way. But I need to figure out how to feed myself–so hungry! Anyway. I got up, ate a grapefruit, took down the tent, and headed to the Visitor’s Center on bike, in case they had the coffee I left at home. I locked up on an overgrown bike rack, walked around the building, sat on a bench, and snapped a photo of this view. If “camping” means this is at the end of your commute, I’m in.

One thought on “Davis Bayou From the National Park Visitor’s Center

  1. Imagine a long run of days like this. Copping an early morning buzz, riding, eating, chatting, camping, a taste or two before sleep, then doing it all over the next day, with more things you’ve never seen before. The wonderful sense of “passing through,” on a time / space continuum you share with only a few.

    Can’t wait to start planning.
