Another bike ride

We go for another bike ride.  This time in the Catskill Mountains.  We started in Bloomville road to Hobart and back to Bloomville.  My bike computer makes it to be a little more than 16.5 miles round trip. The day started and ended with some very pretty blue skies.  Few if any clouds all day.  The ride started when we met a woman hiking that was kind enough to point out a “railroad turntable” (used to turn the engine around to head back in the direction it had just come from) that was near where we were talking.  She also informed us that the large building right next to the trail that we would pass soon was the Sheffield Farm Dairy Plant, the first milk pasteurization facility in the country. The trail is not paved.  Most of the section we did was first gravel with a grass center.  Looked to be used by motorized vehicles but there were no ruts.  We did see a couple of golf carts and ATVs using the trail. We saw an old wood boat in someone’s yard and right across the trail was a goat resting on a gate.  We saw a few Highland cattle.  There were some dairy cows also. In Hobart we bought our lunch at a small place called “The Coffee Pot”.  They were trying to close for the day so Barbara went in and got us lunch and we took it to a gazebo in a nearby town park.  Which is also where Barbara gave me my birthday gifts since I wouldn’t see her on my birthday. A nice way to spend a beautiful day in the great outdoors.  I would like to try and ride the other half of the trail
