After Jay tipped me that they called for showers in the afternoon, I stopped back by the condo, grabbing a rain jacket to stuff it into the travel bag. I left my leather jacket home, glad I could finally ride in a t-shirt. Mistake!
I had thoughts of heading for Annapolis, but Debby reminded me of another event, so my first stop became the Woodstock Inn in Howard County, Maryland, where a bike show was underway. That's about 60 miles north of Alexandria, VA. At Woodstock, I saw a fair number of nice bikes and some partying people, but cut the stay kinda short. When my eyes weren't on other things, I began noticing that the sunshine had been completely replaced with dark clouds. Time to go!
And of course, right after getting home, the rain stopped and the sun came out.
Back out after a change of clothes. Too nice a day to stay indoors....Riding season!
I decided to stick close to home, and was pleasantly reminded that, as much as I bitch about it, there's quite a lot to see in my own neighborhood: Mount Vernon (George Washington's home), Old Town Alexandria, and the scenic George Washington Parkway connecting the two. Here's a few shots along the way....Just a pleasant afternoon of riding, with no plans, and no time to be anywhere. My kinda day.
