It really feels like summer now! We had a hot weekend around here. Need to remember to do early rides on days like this, but we had stuff to do in the morning – and then there was the parade for our town’s Heritage Days.
As I have said before, we live on the main road in town, which is annoying for traffic, but gets us great seats for all the parades!
I love the bagpipes, too:
They are really good!
After lunch, we headed on out to the lake! Very sunny, so I loaded up on the sunscreen today.
I made us stop fairly often in the shade to keep cool.
That’s sweat on my nose and not sunscreen
John was laughing at me taking a selfie, so I took his picture.
Now who’s laughing? That would be me.
Now for the climbs to the lake!
The lake was busy!
This was about 16.5 miles into our ride. We didn’t go into Lake George Village, but just stopped here and had a snack and a rest:
Then it was time to turn around. It’s all innocent looking, but this is the start of a 2 mile climb up.
Then zooming along in the shade.
Our destination was Martha’s! Mile 22. John missed the first trip to Martha’s a couple weeks ago when I went by myself, so he wanted a visit. Mine was a hot apple sundae with cheesecake flavored ice cream. Yeah, baby.
Now I think Martha’s sundaes are the best. They don’t just put the ice cream in and pour a topping on it. They put in some ice cream, then a bit of topping, then more ice cream and the rest of the topping. Their sundaes are very ride worthy
After a fill up of water bottles, it was time to head back home. Someone had taken the time to work on their property that abuts the path. This was all new.
I am getting me some of these in our new house.
This is the cinder part of the path that we don’t go on very often. We stopped here to look at some ducks.
Home, sweet home. You can see the settee project in the background, too.
