Had a perfect travel day yesterday. Actually got away early, 8:45, and had beautiful cold clear weather all day. It was only once we got close to Portland that we saw any snow at all and there it was only deep in the bush. But shortly after we stopped for the night the snow started. It looks like we got about 3" overnight. Luckily we're heading south! Had great Chinese food last night. Who knew we'd find it in Maine! Here's what morning looked like - winter ...

As we entered the commons the first thing we noticed was the large lake that only 3 days earlier was filled with geese was now all of a sudden frozen solid, around the edge there were plenty of men daring each other to test whether it would take their weight or not.

Got a great deal for a beautiful hotel too! Another upgrade! Woohoo ...
... beams on. A lot of them wouldn't even notice and drive by burning my retinas into a mush.
I missed the turning for the house as it was pitch Black. Luckily Michelle had seen it and was waiting for me.
We hit the hay as soon as we got back. What a fantastic day of riding, eating and best of all, making new friends. My favourite part of bike travel.
