Today was a great day! We finally had some rolling hills, though small, which I appreciated since I could finally shift a little! I rode by myself today – taking breaks in towns and talking to locals – it was a short day and I knew I had plenty of time. Despite all my breaks, I was still in by 12 noon and heard there was a water park in this town and it was only about a little over a mile away! I perked up and was excited to go and so was Skip so 30 minutes later, we headed to the water park on our bikes with glee in our eyes! The waterpark was amazing – lap swimming (I got in a few laps – it was a 50m pool!), huge slide, lazy pool, diving board, lots of places to lay out in the shade – we spent the whole afternoon there, enjoying the cool water, the only local hangout, and just chatting and relaxing by the pool. We also discussed other riding trips we want to do so we hope to get that organized on this trip – a trip down the Cali coast and a trip through Bryce, Zion, and the Grand Canyon – two trips I won’t miss! I couldn’t have asked for a better day. It was just what a needed – something different with some great company! You can see from my tan lines that there is a lot of sun out here! It is HOT HOT HOT!
