I was at the beach the other week, at Follonica. It had been years since I had been on a bike, and so I tried it again, and like they say, you DO remember how to ride a bike. Even after 10 years!!
Anyhow, my friend and I rode the bikes to where they have lots of donkeys of all sizes. What a sight to see, and how loving they are, mothers nursing the young, the youngsters running around (they DO trot quite quickly) and all of them thirsty, drinking from water together.
Then, I spotted this donkey in another area of the yard.
There he or she was. With a parked bicycle. Amazing!!
I really don't know just when he had parked it, or how long he had gone on it, but they do say that these particular kind of donkeys RIDE their bikes!! I was shocked to hear that!!
Anyhow, next time I am in that area, I am going to go back and wait. I will wait until I get a picture of donkeys riding. It will certainly be a first, but when you love taking photographs as I do, you always are looking for just the right shot.

Here he or she is....trying not to look suspicious, so that no one will take his or her bike.
