Took a little ride with my best friend and riding buddy, Kim, today. We had planned to poke around some nearby ghost towns to take a few pictures and spend some time on the bikes. The weather had other plans though. We rode through a strong and gusting crosswind for about twenty miles before deciding it would be better to save the ghost town trip for another day. We did stop at Lake Cypress for awhile and took a few photos before we turned for home. You can get an idea of the strength of the wind in some of the pictures. We had to take care of how we faced the bikes when we stopped, for fear the wind would blow them off their stands.
After taking some pictures and strolling around a bit, we headed back home. Shortly after we put the bikes away we had some pretty severe weather blow through, a number of trees came down in our area and Orlando had a tornado as well as straight line winds that did a bit of damage.
Still, we managed a few pictures of old Florida that you might enjoy. We'll save the ghost town tour for another time.
