Highlights of the day:
A big highlight of today? It didn’t rain. We rode to Little Falls and it didn’t rain at all. It always rains on the day into Little Falls but it didn’t rain today. It was 4 for 4 for me. And even higher odds for other members of the staff. Were we lost? Had a wormhole transported us to another dimension? Were we in an alternate reality? Not complaining, mind you, just a bit confuzzled.
Our route followed the Erie Canal for most of the day and then took a parallel route along the NY Throughway. We’ll have more opportunities tomorrow to get a little more up close and personal with the locks along the canal.
An interesting touring attraction today was The World’s Smallest Church. It was built back in 1989. It seats two people. It sits in the middle of a small pond. You might, as I did, ask yourself why one would build a church that seats two people in the middle of a pond. If you find the answer – please send it along.
Big excitement? A Laundromat. A Laundromat right across the street from the hotel. A Laundromat that is probably the last Laundromat for most of the riders & staff on the tour. Hazaah!
Talk has begun at route rap in reference to the end of the tour logistics. Hard to believe that we only have 4 more riding days. or ??
