Tempting as it is to wage a war of well thought out and humorous words on the legend that is TWH, we have agreed to resist the overwhelming urge to entertain just one of our devout Followers with witty riposte and instead endeavour to bring a little sunshine and laughter into the lives of our devout Followers with stories you can all appreciate. That said, please feel free to critique, review or simply make any unwelcome suggestions about the Blog and we’ll give you all the time you deserve… TWH you deserve all our time as long as you share it with MG!
Back to today! Without “Helmet Cam” it is near impossible to describe the dramatic transition of scenery from State to State. From the intense bronzes, greens, yellows, reds and oranges of Virginia flora that abruptly refashion to the “kinetically challenged” fauna (domestic road kill) of North Carolina, today we were blessed with yet more metamorphosis. As we turned South onto the Topsail Beach coastline we witnessed the Sun kiss the Atlantic Ocean and the sound of surf endlessly breaking on the golden sandy shoreline. We hope this is a sneak preview of the coastline beauty we’ll enjoy over the next few days.
An update on the comedy tan-lines. Picture this if your imagination can stretch to such lengths. Take a piece of paper and cut to the shape of an “X”, large enough to span half the surface area of a Soccer ball (no offense intended). Put the X on your face and ride your bike for 6 hours in a Southerly direction with the full wrath of the Sun mercilessly beating down on your face. Ensure Sun Block wasn’t added before the 6-hour trek and upon arrival at your destination carefully remove said “X” and look in the mirror…voila Anthony. Kat says “safety before vanity”, Anthony says “damn those Sunglasses and Helmet”.
We’ve uploaded a few photos to provide insight into the “fast changes arriving” and hope you’ll feel compelled to book a holiday and come join us on stage of the Epic Journey. Oh yes, another thing about today; we found that mythical place “Shangri-Law”! If you lawyers out there can keep a secret it’s located on 3rd & Princess Street in Wilmington. Never have you seen so many lawyers happily moving from door to door, safe in the knowledge that behind every door is yet another law firm filled with like-minded people. Kat had a momentary injection of euphoria as we sat in the Courthouse Café observing the frantic behaviour whilst eating our delicious lunch.
Talking of food, we’ve just finished dinner! Who says fried food is bad? We’ll tell y’all who, those very same people who haven’t eaten North Carolina Hush Puppies.
Finally… we are now in Cape Fear. Do not panic, we are not alone now, there do seem to be a lot of people around, and Robert De Niro is not waiting in the Lobby talking Italian.Us x
