Not a great pic but the nesting bald eagle was quite cool.
I'm in Virginia biking with a group of friends. The ride down was the most tiring thing I've done so far. I took several naps - obviously I wasn't the driver.
We have not had much luck following a map but our rides end up being great. The first day we had two rides - with a little lunch break at "home" in between. The morning ride went through Williamsburg and Jamestown.
Loved loved this bridge through the Jamestown Plantation.
We are studying Jamestown/Colonists right now at school so it was especially awesome. The wind was incredible though - not in a good way. We saw two bald eagles! Yes!
We rode along a very bumpy road which I was one of the only people to like. I didn't like the bumpy road but the scenery made up for it! We saw two bald eagles and have actually been by again to see two babies in the nest plus some soaring overhead.
The bike path that we went on in the afternoon had many many bridges with one long curvy one that I loved.
The second day was a ride on more back roads with more hills and resulted in two falls and some flats, luckily none of them me. I managed to muster enough energy to go for a brief fun when I got back but calling it a run is generous.
It was very scenic and quiet during sections of the second day.
A bullet ridden sign does not fill you with confidence when you
are riding between posted lands of two gun clubs. Not a great
place to get lost.
We climbed over this and kept going.
This I assembled for an Instagram contest of a run on a different route. It was easy to do a new run since I was nowhere near home.
Not my usual sights. THe first day I biked 62 miles. The next 51. (It has been going down each day.) I ran 4 on the second day. The third day was my low point in tiredness and attitude but yesterday was outstanding. I went for a run this morning and am catching up a bit and then I am going out for a bike ride. I am loving a day on my own! My group is doing a century. I didn't feel ready for it and dreaded the idea whereas having my own day is very enticing. So off to bike!
