Bikes, Kids, Fence

Memories of summer

Their bikes were left outside the fence as these kids were about to take lessons on how to paddle and stay upright in kayaks.

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

So glad kids can ride their bikes to lessons and not always be driven. I bet they enjoyed the ride as much as the lesson.

Looks like a Norman Rockwell painting! Love it.

Roan said...

Staying upright would be my problem. I would be trying to paddle upside down. Love the fence with the colorful bikes.

see you there! said...

Something about the light looks like the end of summer too.

Really nice. Love that the bikes are red, too.

Sandra said...

it is good to see kids out on bikes and learning to kayak instead of inside on computers and tablets...

William Kendall said...

It is a good activity for them.

Such a cute photo!

Birdman said...

That WAS my summer... oh, and girls.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

I don't see any tethers or locks on the bikes. Just like the old days but certainly not today in my neighborhood!

Perfect summer shot.

Felicia said...

neat image. colorful.

barbara l. hale said...

Wonderful title for this shot! Wonderful photo!

Stephanie said...

Wonderful and fun.

Ida said...

Neat shot of the bikes against the fence. Around here though they would need to be locked as people would tend to steal them. Learning to keep a kayak upright is an important thing to learn.

Jack said...

It is refreshing to see kids getting around on their bikes instead of having parents drive them everywhere.

retriever said...

See a lovely weather for walk with bikes.

this is how summer should be spent in childhood, not cooped up inside the house killing cyborgs on video games.

Ruth Kelly said...

For those fortunate enough to be able to ride to school. - Back to school time.

Taken For Granted said...

Bikes and summer, a perfect combination.

Terri said...

Oh what fun! I don't see many kids out riding bikes anymore. I used to live on mine when I was a kid.

Ginny said...

Love this picture, it kind of represents summer fun.

cieldequimper said...

Ah c'mon, summer isn't over yet! :-)

RedPat said...

I bet they are wishing that they were out there today! - it is sooo warm!

Lois said...

What a fun activity for the kids! Summer is still going strong here, but I am ready for some cooler weather.

Carver said...

This reminds me of summers from my childhood. We rode our bikes everywhere and my parents had a summer house where we paddled in an old wooden kayak and we also had a small sailboat. My daughter never enjoyed sailing as much as I did although she liked swimming in the ocean and riding her bike everywhere.

Chandra said...

Great combination - bicycles and fence. I give it A+!

Peace :)

LV said...

A great assortment of things to make a wonderful post.

Randy said...

Oh to be a kid again.

Marie said...
