Notes From the Lighthouse


Saturday, August 31, 2013

Just a quickie update: terrific day of cycling, over 70 miles throughout the Thousand Islands! Ferry over to Wolfe Island and again over to Kingston. Rode to Gananoque and down through Wellesley Island. Walking our bikes over the bridges taking in the breathtaking view!

Then a speedy zap up the NY side through Clayton, Cape Vincent and back to the Tibbetts Point lighthouse where we're staying.

After we knew the way, a straight shot down the NY side I broke away from our group (6 of us) for a really pumped up, speedy ride back on the last 20 miles. Three things propelled me:

1) It's a blast to go fast! :-)
2) I like to challenge my body and torch more calories,

And,

3) just like Paul McCartney at the end of Helter Skelter screams "I got blisters on my fingers!" my backside was hollering at me to "get the heck off this bike!" The faster I pedaled, the sooner I'd be off the bike! :-)

Today was the take-it-all-in day, tomorrow will be more of a noodling, smell the roses day.

We had a little rain today from Kingston to Gananoque but not so much to make us unhappy. The day was overcast, but cool.

Pics to follow when I get home!
