July 31 - Cambridge WI
Planned ourselves a shorter day today, yesterday was long and tiring in the heat. We are trying to pace ourselves as we get closer to Ottawa and visiting my mom and Mike's Dad! Thought if we had a shorter day today and most of the day to rest, we could get to Ottawa in 2 more days.
I have mentioned previously the wonderful online organization we were introduced to that supports bicycle travelers; Warm Showers. We had arranged what would be our second Warmshowers visit with a couple Georgia and Phil, in Cambridge WI. A most wonderful evening spent with an inspirational couple!! We shared some wine, some food and of course bicycling stories!! Phil has been a cyclist most of his adult life, has written and published 5 books on bicycling. Georgia shares his love for bicycles and for the great outdoors and they both enthusiastically grasp life and live it to the fullest!! They have some challenges right now that may change how they enjoy each day but does not prevent them from enjoying each day!! They reach out to others who share their passion for life and welcome us into their cozy home, making us feel welcomed. We had such a delightful time!! Thank you Georgia and Phil!!!
