Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known.

Today’s Capture Your 365 prompt is Lucky, and the email suggested things such as horseshoes and four-leaf clovers and whatever might be lucky for you. M and I keep all our superstitions on the barn.

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.
~ Ernest Hemingway
I went for a bike ride today. M and I met up with a friend and we rode a part of the Towpath Trail that we haven’t ridden yet. It was a fun ride, especially since we had the added company of our friend (who probably has ridden that section of the trail because she is a cycling machine, putting in an incredible amount of mileage on her bike). The day was hot and humid, but Isaac’s rain held off. We rode 8.7 miles, and had a picnic lunch afterwards.
