Song of the day: Gene Autry – Back in the Saddle Again. http://youtu.be/80NoPLp-Zl0
I crossed the industrial looking bridge from the super hip Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and into Maine, my eighth state so far. The weather was pleasant, the coastal route was flat, and traffic was mostly easy to deal with. Lots of people out this way, so lots of photos and impromptu Q&A sessions. We stopped lots along the beaches for walks, snacks, photos, and languidly rolled along.
It was just a nice day out with my buddy Petunia. I’m feeling a bit self-conscious about all my ramblings, so I’ll just post some photos and spare the details, but it was a low-mileage day, including hitting the 500 mile mark today. We’re camped out behind a fire department in Goodwins Mills, Maine, with permission! There are a lot of ticks out here and I’ve brushed a few off both Tunes and myself already, but luckily they hadn’t bitten yet, they were just gross and crawling, sticking to us. Blech.
