Bike Parts and the Schoodic Peninsula

I woke up pretty early this morning. Craig and I chatted for a while, I did some work on the computer, and then went back to sleep at 7:30. Then I didn’t wake up again until 10am.

Marty made everyone waffles and we debated on what to do with the day. I was still under the impression all I needed was my bike levers and I’d be able to fix my bike tire issue. We headed down to Ellsworth and Cadillac Mountain Sports to pick up bike tools. I ended up getting a few other goodies for my bike while in there.

Afterwards we picked up 5 lobsters for dinner and a few other errand items. On our way back home we stopped at the Schoodic Peninsula of Acadia National Park. It’s a beautiful loop road that runs around the peninsula. Surprising to me was that my inlaws had never been here and Craig and I had been twice. The weather was still iffy, but we decided to explore.

The rain held off long enough for us to get out of the car at several spots and snap photos. I had forgotten how beautiful it is, even on an overcast day. We headed back to our home for the week and prepared to cook up lobster.

Dinner was hard shell lobsters, potatoes, corn on the cob, salad and for desert, more no pudge brownies and ice cream. We ate very well tonight.

The big downer for my night was that I went to take the tire off my bike, but had to clean it first. When I cleaned it, I saw the burst and rip through the sidewall of the tire. This sucks because I now have to make another stop at the bike shop and buy a whole new tire. In the meantime I’ll be riding Craig’s bike around.
