Tour de Pollen
We had a relatively short ride on the C&O Canal today. We went 12 or so miles from Carderock over to Roosevelt Island. In this photo, the bikes are parked across the canal from Dean & DeLucca in Georgetown. Sushi.....mmm...
The pollen was thick today. I felt as though someone was pelting my eyeballs with sand. Folks all down the trail were snorking, coughing and rubbing their eyes. Or at least it appeared that way from behind my pollen coated eyeballs.
We stopped at one of the Lock Houses on the canal and met a couple who was doing the dream trip that I spoke of yesterday. This young Utah couple was only seven miles into the trip from Georgetown to Pittsburg. It was fun chatting with them.
