A 10 mile ride brought us to the point of the peninsula. It's called Sconticut Neck and it's an area of house on stilts and platforms to stay above the ocean tidal surges. Some have to be as high as 20' to conform to code. Hurricanes have taken out houses in the past and probably will again. During the ride on Tuesday, I regretted not bringing my camera. Today is makeup day.
I also made a decision on a new bike and bought a 2009 Felt Z45. The cash came from the tour cancellation and the bike is my retirement gift to myself.
