The train bridge.

We're getting close to the canal, nasty rotary coming up and nasty road shoulder as you can see.

Looking across the canal to the other side.

This is the end of the canal where we turned around.

Another veiw of the halfway point where we took a rest.

You can see the fog and mist blocking out the top of the smoke stack.

John and I decided to extend Sundays ride so we would get a century in. By piecing together a bunch of other NBW rides we came up with a loop that would take us down to the Cape Cod Canal and back to the ride. It was a flat ride the whole way but the weather really sucked. We rode into a lot of misty rain all day and we didn't see any sun until we got back to the start. We ended up with 102 miles for the day.

Last Scrimage Before Season Starts

Friday night we drove up to Endicott College to watch Tiffany and the rest of her Brandeis team play Endicott. Brandeis won 3-1 and Tiffany had one goal. The season starts Tuesday night and I can't wait.

Rehoboth Loop

Farm fresh crops and homemade jams here on Carpenter st.

I got in a short ride Thursday around Rehoboth. Totaled 15 miles.
