I needed to get some pictures for my blog. I got on Jo’s trike and got about 3
block when it quit. Battery problem. I got it home and got on my trike and took
off. I got a couple miles from the house and the red light (low battery) came
on. I got it home and took Boca for a walk. We got to Mallory Square and I went
to take a picture and the camera/phone flashed, low battery. These are mostly
old pictures I am re-using. Wasn’t my day for batteries.
Key West you have got to love it
