I woke up in the beautiful spot with the surf pounding, and figure I should walk over to the beach and check it out.
I took a couple videos but I can’t edit them into one on this iPad, so here they are as two. This is the pounding surf I heard all night, and still heard for a few miles down the road as I pedaled away.
I enjoyed the walk to the beach instead of rushing off. I wasn’t anxious to get back on the bike and at that point, I didn’t realize how tired I really was from the day before. But, I had an agenda so off I went.
Of course there were hills. There are always hills! But, with hills also come beautiful views.
The route then went through Humbug State Park, and I pedaled through beautiful pine forests and not too much climbing, at least for a while.
Again, the climbs that came later brought beautiful views.
It was beautiful, but a really difficult day. I was really tired from the day before and struggled to make my destination 33 miles away. There was no way I was going to try for the next possibility 11 miles farther down. When you spend more time watching the miles click by rather than looking at the area, that’s not good.
So, it was time to pull back a little and my destination for Monday was the place 11 miles away, and some downtime.
