I made my way up to the bike bridge.
Eventually I was as far as I wanted to go and went south. On the way back there are some nice spots to stop and look at Burlington harbor.
A lot of you liked my "bike" picture last time so I took it again in a couple of different places. Here is one of them.
Nice, right? As I said it was a glorious ride.
Saturday I got up early and T and I ran 11 miles. Neither of us would call it a particularly great run. Today we ran 5 and that went much better though still not terribly fast. It was humid even early! When I got back I changed and then headed out for a bike ride. I took the loop that I haven't taken in awhile. First I looked up the Green Mountain Stage Race (a 4 day bike race) on the Internet as a lot of it was the course they were going to be riding. They had barely started and had 60 miles to go over two mountain passes so I thought I had plenty of time not to be in their way. They call the part I was on Baby Gap. They did have to adjust the usual routes due to all the road damage so I wasn't sure if they would be on this road or not until I looked it up.
I found this on the side of the road from Stage 2 (today
was Stage 3) and couldn't resist picking it up. Of course I
wasn't pretending it was mine.
I could see more road damage here as I could on the 11 mile run. There were a lot of roads closed - but still nothing like the rest of the state. We are supposed to get more heavy rain tonight but let's hope that doesn't happen.
When I came to this part of the road by the river I had to
get off and walk!
Here is the peaceful river now. Let's hope it
stays that way.
When I got home from my ride as I was coming up the driveway it started to thunder.
The sky was rather ominous looking but nothing much happened.
Have a happy Labor Day!
