On Thursday, after rolling into Wytheville, Virginia I put my culinary skills to good use and prepared dinner with a little help from a local grocery store where I picked up a rotisserie chicken and supplies for a tasty spinach salad.
Here’s a shot of what Chef Bonnie-r-dee whipped up for dinner:
Friday (May 22, 2015) was filled with some awesome riding on Route 221 from Wytheville, Virginia to Hickory, North Carolina. I know I’ve said this before but this was some of the best riding yet. The roads swept gracefully through the countryside winding over the lush green hills. The pavement was some of the best making my riding smooth as my bike and I found oneness in the rhythm. It was beyond belief.
Here’s a short clip of the ride and the beautiful countryside:
Today, Saturday May 23, 2015 included a stop at a roadside market where I experienced fresh picked peaches, luscious juicy sweet watermelon, freshly made pecan rolls and fried peanuts. This kept me occupied so I was able to avoid the ice cream 🙂
Gourd….I mean Gord….this one is for you 🙂
From here the route took me to Chester State Park for an enjoyable afternoon stop by the lake which was surrounded by majestic pine trees that stretched to the sky.
Here is a video of part of the park for your viewing pleasure.
Tomorrow I’m Savannah bound…I can hardly wait!
