Delaware - Day 604/28/2005 06:01:05 by Administrator

Today's four letter word. . . wind! It blew coming out of the northwest, which was exactly the way we were heading. It was a beautiful day outside, with temperatures in the mid 60s. The sky had little white puffy clouds, and tons of sunshine. If we had done the trip in reverse direction, the wind would have been with us for 95 percent of the journey. Mary picked out some excellent roads, again with the aid of the Delaware bicycle maps. The last day is always sad. We had lunch (subs) in Clayton at a little country store (yummy) and also stopped at Bruester Ice Cream stand for a late afternoon sundae (Remember It?s not about the riding, it's about the food!). We had a great tour, and would continue if we could, but Katelyn has a Bio Genius contest in New Jersey which we need to attend. We finished up camping at Lums State park. The repair on my seat worked very well. When we arrived at the state police barracks to retrieve our Subaru, the battery was dead (I had forgotten to close my door all the way). With the help of a state trooper, we were on our way. We camped at Lums State park for the night. To our happy surprise, there was a dog show going on. Life is so much fun! Now to go around and enjoy the dogs!
