Evening Cruise

One of my favorite pastimes is riding my tricycle around Crystal Beach. Just down the street from my house, there's a small pond. You can find ducks, turtles, and other creatures here. I guess they heard me and my hog coming down the road because there's no one to be found.

Now I'm headed down to the Pinellas Trail which is an awesome path for cycling, walking, rollerblading, etc.

Look what I found alongside the trail - a banana tree! Man, I wish those babies were ripe for the picking! Check out the gigantic purple banana flower which is drooping because he's so heavy.

Crystal Beach is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, which is at the end of this street. I should pedal faster so I don't miss the green flash.

Dusk is upon us. I am enjoying the serenity while I contemplate my favorite moments of the day.

Unfortunately I think you are too far north to grow bananas Carson.

Hi, Big Monkey!

Boy, you sure do get around on that trike. I need to get some transportation.

Love, Noah
