After breakfast in Bristol it was an ascent over the Appalachian Gap where there is a killer sting in the tail of the climb: I nearly ran out of gears!
The day was hot so I stopped quite frequently but, after a quick photo stop at the State Capitol Building, I eventually arrived at the home of David and Mary, the day's wedding couple, just as the thunder and lightning commenced.
It was a privilege to spend a late afternoon and evening in the company of some very interesting people and, in particular to chat with Debi and Bryan.
Tonight we camp in David and Mary's garden. The garden provides David with the opportunity to put into practice his ideas on sustainability: all very interesting.
