Done!!! Joyce and I arrived at our hotel last night at 9:11 pm., after a 131k day into fierce headwinds most of the way. After leaving the ferry in Argentia, it was 10:45 am. before we were under way. By the time we were in St. John’s, it was dark and raining. We waited until Friday, 30 August morning to ascend Signal Hill to formally end the adventure at 9:11 am. Nl time.
We enjoyed a terrific meal for lunch at a local restaurant provided by the tour organizer. There were speeches by some, good memories, and mixed emotions about a tough summer being over and having to return to our normal lives.
The exodus of riders began shortly after with handshakes and hugs and best wishes in whatever their furtures held. Joyce and I return to Huntsville Saturday, 31 August where we’ve only spent a day since leaving 13 June. We’ll be busy for a while getting our normal lives on track again.
During the next couple weeks, I will put the finishing touches on this blog since I’ll have more time to focus on it. Please stay tuned.
