Forest Gump’s mother once said “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”. We would say that our cycling tour is like a bag of Revels. Yesterday was the coffee cream, whereas today was either the toffee or the Malteser…. You know what we’re saying. Yes, today was a bright, crisp beautiful day. No punctures. Garmins working. 60 miles done by 3pm, and an average speed of 12.4 mph. Cool.
And when we arrived, 7 comments on our blog. We’d like to say a huge thank you for all you wonderful folk who are commenting. The first thing we want to do when we arrive each day is log into the blog and see our messages. They mean a lot. However, we know that there are a few people (ourselves included) who are desperate to add a few words of wisdom (or perhaps support) but who are technically challenged when it comes to posting a comment on the blog, so if anyone has a few minutes to explain how you actually add these comments, you will be our hero!
So, tonight we are in Fredericksburg, a wonderful town in Virginia, steeped in history. The Kenmore Inn, where we are staying (see photo) is beautiful, and many many years ago housed George Washington’s mother. The wonderful Innkeeper, Terri, also gave us the best recommendation for a drink before dinner: the Capitol Ale House, which has hundreds of beers, and a bar with an ice strip to keep your beer cool (photo). Truly cool.
We are now very drunk…looking forward to our 55 miles tomorrow.
