6/10/2013 Millbridge to Perry – Audries birthday


Today Susan and I cycled our longest day- 74.5 miles. Susan was a real Marine, and only needed 2 coffees and one Coke despite the hills and headwinds.

Theis beautiful falls was in Millbridge, Maine. The native americans named it “Big Bad Falls.”

I am learning a lot about Maine and the people that live here. I admire their rugged independance, I see the old money, I talk to well educated people often. Their short growing season- from late June to early September- astonishes me.

A really good trip.
