There are signs of sum­mer every­where th­ese days, and some are more un­usual than oth­ers. We cap­tured this im­age on Wed­nes­day, July 3 of two young girls from Spa­niard’s Bay mak­ing their way to­ward a pop­u­lar swim­ming area. Hav­ing to “dou­ble-up” on a bike is some­thing that many — re­gard­less of age — can re­late to, but hav­ing the tech­ni­cal wiz­ardry of a smart­phone at your fin­ger­tips is a rel­a­tively new phe­nom­e­non. Here, Kier­stin His­cock uses her phone to send text mes­sages to friends, while Abby Oliver nav­i­gates the bike along the street. Kier­stin is the 12-year-old daugh­ter of Tammy and Vic­tor His­cock, while Abby, 13, is the daugh­ter of Tammy and Doug Oliver. Both are stu­dents at Holy Redeemer school in Spa­niard’s Bay.
