We had the day off so we wanted to make the most of it! That means we were up at 4:30 because the sun rises here at 4:45…. We have been doing some bike rides on the Down East Sunrise Trail in the evenings so we decided to get in a good stretch today.
We started biking around 7 and had the trail to ourselves for a while until the ATV’s started to make there presence known. Most of them are respectful of us lowly bicyclists but a few blow right by leaving us in a cloud of dust. We really do enjoy this trail in spite of the ATVs.
The trail passes beautiful wetlands and springs working their way down the mountains to the sea.
By the time we finished our day we had knocked out 22 miles and had given the bodies a good workout!!!
Next up, as we were heading back home we spied a little antique store so of course we stopped in to have a look. A couple of days earlier we were antiquing and came across a cast iron griddle with a gate mark on the bottom. This means it is older than the 1890’s…. It had a price tag of $125.00 so it stayed on the shelf… Today we came across another one… $18.50 is a much better price!!! All in all a great day and we finished up with hot dogs, corn on the cob, and baked beans!!!
