Wednesday, July 25, 2018                            Baker City layover day

Today is a rest day for me. I didn’t sleep well last night. Too much noise – trucks, cars, trains, parties. We are in town and I could really tell.

It is 1:20pm and I stink. The shower last night wasn’t enough I guess.

I did get some stuff done today:

  • Laundromat (biked there with John and Mary Lou)  Came out with clean clothes and recharged phone and spare battery
  • Rinsed off bike
  • Took bike to mechanic to get dust blown off brakes
  • Found an outlet to continue recharging the spare battery and to charge the toothbrush battery
  • Yoga

There was a chance to go tubing on the river but their timing and mine didn’t coincide so I didn’t get to go.

It is too hot to take a nap inside my tent so I sat under the awnings, put my head down on the table and rested.  Eventually woke up and started playing solitaire on my phone.  Another rider sat down nearby and started up a conversation.  Got to know Steve a bit and he introduced me to some others.

After dinner, several of us wandered to the local park, Geiser-Pollman Park, where Jay Fleming and the Unlikely Saints were playing.  Enjoyed the music and the company.  Did a little ‘dancing’ (that’s what I call free form moving to the music).

Enjoying the concert in the park.

female, married, in love, beautiful grown daughters, great and large extended family spread all over the US, enjoying my life, my favorite place to be is outside (unless its cold and wet).
