Biking down the middle

Old dock on the Hudson River

Old wooden piles stretch out across the river. Remnants of a pattern are visible where solid beams once made for a walkway. The dock is worn and old. It slowly washes away and decays.

You come across many of these old docks on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River. They lend their own sense of beauty to the landscape while casting shadows and reminders of a time that once was.

On the other side of these docks, a new beautiful park is going up at Newport. It has trees, walkways, jungle gyms, and even sand and beach chairs. Each day the waterfront park transforms.

Biking through the middle, I have the past on one side of me and the prospect of future on the other.
