Addiction LXXVI

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

One took an interest in me during my September tour. Also saw a bald eagle and great blue heron that evening.

I do not have one of these in my collection, and I took a quick look through my resource without success either. Look through here for now and I'll try some other sources later.

We always find stink bugs on the boat at this time of year. They seem to like my foul weather gear, particularly. And if you look up at the rig when the sun is right, you can see it streaming hundreds of spider webs. That's gotta be slow.
