Had a sleep in today and a long, late breakfast as I’ve only got about 35 km to cover. I really enjoyed staying with Terry, who lives in a very expensive trailer home with deck, outside shower, jacuzzi and parked under the stars.

He retired, bought the land and lives out in the wilderness of Wildwood when he’s not travelling and biking.

Stopped at Wildwood Cyclery to swap 2 inner tubes wrongly sold to me for 2 that would fit.

The manager gave me 3 in return, a high visibility jacket and puncture repair kit for free πŸ™‚

Heading up through the villages with its resident population of 100,000 retired folk. They say Americans never get out their cars.. Even to pop to the shops… This however is not quite true! I have never seen rush hour with electric golf carts… Get on!
