Evening clouds

The North River at low tide, photo taken around 6:00, nice clouds in the sky.

There was a few breaks in the clouds. I was to Montague and them went cycling in the evening.
I was using the old bike that I had repacked the wheel bearing but I didn't torque the axle nut enough and the wheel shifted. So I had to cut the ride short and come as I didn't have a wrench with me. I still logged 20 km.
