Last week was the beginning of the mailbox season for my friend Sandy and me. We still make occasional trips to Bird Island during the colder months (they aren’t as enjoyable when it’s really cold), but the weekly bike rides start when temperatures climb and the beaches fill up.
This time around, the mailbox needed a little maintenance, and we were lucky enough to have help. The mailbox hinge was being held together by a pen sleeve and the flag was missing. Sandy and her husband, John, and I rode out armed with tools. I had a new mailbox strapped to my back.
We replaced the mailbox and added new letters designating it as the official Kindred Spirit Mailbox. You may not know this, but the post and support for the mailbox are the original ones from 33 years ago!
The mailbox is now ready for the summer season! Here are a few pictures of our excursion (and a selfie for good measure!)
