Sunday April 17, 2016, 11 miles (18 km) – Total so far: 202 miles (325 km)
After two weekends in a row being away for most of my four-day weekends, I had a fair amount of things to catch up on this Sat/Sun. I also wanted to hang around the house while Nigel was using the chainsaw to do some tree work. Ambulance response times here aren’t all that flash, so should he need emergency assistance, it would be quicker for me to drive him to the ER in Albury than wait for an ambulance.
While all of this didn’t allow me to put down any good miles over the two days, I did get all of the plants watered, the car washed and vacuumed, the wisteria pruned back (truly, if you want to punish future generations and whomever buys your house after you leave… plant vines…), all of the old cuttings from the roses and other bushes cleaned up, and all of the bedding washed and aired before the cold weather arrives.
I did this local loop on Saturday but made no purchase. Today, I took the camera along to get some photos and stopped at the local IGA at the end of the loop to pick up a couple sale items and a milk. Not shown in these photos are the local pub, a doctors office, the old people’s home, the preschool and a couple of small, sorta sad parks. But this collection of photos, combined with Ride 4, sums up where I live. Hopefully we will get out for a longer ride tomorrow – I feel a bit lost on the weekends I don’t do an overnight ride!
