On the ride home I noticed some obvious tourist walking around the area. That usually means the cruise ship was in port. It's a small one that makes 8 stops up the Northeastern coast. Places like Newport R.I., New Bedford, Ma. and Portland Me. along with a few others. Much of the scallop and fishing fleet was in port also because of the tropical storm that passed through the area last week.
The afternoon was set aside for wifey and we spent a good part of it at the beach. Sunny, mid 80's with a breeze off the bay was all one could ask. It got better when we were offered an iced vodka and lemonade cocktail by our friends whom we met there.
The bike riding to coffee and beach gave me 24 miles. It adds up quickly and easily sometimes.
Brandon's 29th is Tuesday but David and I decided to take him out to dinner this Sunday evening. The three of us ride and tour together so we used this as our private celebration. Not only that but the restaurant has a Sunday special where a complimentary bottle of wine is given with every two entrees. Naturally we took advantage of that.
Here are a few more photos of the day.
