Where I stayed
My 1 year anniversary plans started yesterday when Polly hacked into the computer to discover that I was downloading 'Alias-Season 5'. We were lucky enough in New Zealand to meet some people who had a whole library of episodes for us to watch on the computer, we have been ploughing our way through these in the tent across USA. With seasons 1-4 covered (about 40 hours of viewing), We were desperate to catch the concluding season. Some would say 14 episodes of a very trashy US spy serious is lacking romantic imagination, I would agree, but it is not easy to buy presents when all you have is Walmart and Mcdonalds
With yesterdays anniversary of 10 years together in the past and todays anniversary of 1 year married underway we hit the road for another 50 miles. It was a really long day, 7 hours cycling but all very relaxed. Hills were in our way but we took them slowly and the old route 22 delivered us safely to New Tripoli. It is an area of green beauty, unbelievable to think that we are so close to New York. We even stopped off at a hotel to buy some beers, it had a very English pub feel about it with a row of drunk blokes lined up along the bar giving the third degree about The Queen.
Just as we arrived and checked into our cabin (yep, smoothy here booked a cabin for the anniversary, didn’t think the tent would be a winner in anniversary number 1) the heavens opened and we sat back to enjoy a storm pass over head.
If has been a quite a year since the wedding. Thank you all for your lovely messages and the support you have given us. In our second year of marriage we plan to do much less cycling!
Miles Cycled: 49 relaxed Sunday miles
