Joy Ride

I just finished a 10" x 20" panoramic snapshot rug of my sister and I riding bikes last summer on Mackinac Island.  Wade snapped this photo of us with a long lens so that the photo would be candid.  This picture is extra special to me because I had undergone surgery about six weeks prior, and the recovery was tough.  So to be able to get on that bike and ride around the island felt like a miracle.  All the more so because I shared that ride with my sister, but also my husband, son, and niece.
