more stuff in the bike lanes

Today's very brief walk to different stores on SE Ocean Boulevard here in Stuart, FL, again necessitated observation of unusual items in the new bicycle lanes.

As example, an infant pacifier device was lying in the bike lane in front of Walgreen's where traffic turns from Monterey Road onto the boulevard. A black vinyl belt obstructed the bike lane on the opposite side of the street in front of the Dunkin Donuts property-lawn; and the white plastic tip of a small 'cigarillo' was propped upon a small stone in the middle of the bike lane and was not dislodged during on-coming traffic (although a swift kick removed it from the roadway).

A crow continued to mourn, as did a white shorebird. Some lanes of traffic held cars with their front headlamps lit -- another signal of mourning among humans.
