Sunday 8/28. 35 miles and 6-7 miles more getting food, groceries, doing laundry, showers, talking with Mimi and family. Holland Lake campsite to Seeley Lake campsite.
We left about 8:30 am and climbed until lunch. Seemed like a bit of a short day, arriving in a town with services and plans for bathing and food and laundry. The campsite at Seeley Lake was about 3 miles from the store. We set up camp and were expecting to pay $5 for the group, when a rider (Dan from Wisconsin) came into camp with only a $20. No one could make change so he paid for everyone. Thanks Dan? We went to town - Tara got change from the bar to pay for the laundry and showers. The showers were in the back of the laundromat. How convenient and certainly a new experience for both of us. Then off to PIZZA. I was soooo happy. We chatted with Mimi a bit (She had her hand surgery today - Tuesday the 30th) and is doing well. Lots of deer in the campground. Lots of little spotted fawns. I was able to talk with John a few minutes and finally say Happy Anniversary. The mornings on the bikes pass quickly and the afternoons seem to drag on a bit with the miles passing more slowly - when I am tired for sure. Food is a bit of a challenge, balancing enough of the right food with weight. The lake was pretty as the sun went down and the temperature dropped quickly. Our friend John was up in the night - he and Louis had burgers that didn't sit well. Ugh when you feel badly on a bike.
