I think more than anything I was mostly looking forward to this day.
we rented bikes at Biken’Roll in Alexandria VA in the morning, and took the Mount Vernon trail which is a 9 mile stretch of a gorgeous trail to Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington.
This time again, I chose not to stand in line with everybody else for a stupid visit inside the home.
instead I walked around the grounds, went down to the pier on the Potomac and tried to stay quiet, as the signs demanded, by GW’s tomb.
Riding back to Alexandria in the evening was a ride against the wind and I just couldn’t wrap my mind around the fact the sun insists to set somewhere over the hills instead of into the ocean. weird.
It was the best and most beautiful bike ride I’ve ever done.
I can’t see how anything is going to top today, the bestday.
