July 2016 - Bellingham, MA - Falmouth, MA - Woods Hole, MA - Hyannis, Chatham, Halifax, Nova Scotia

The first part of July, we left Bellingham, MA, and drove to Falmouth, MA, to cycle.  We had 3 choices of bike trails so since we support Rails-to-Trails through our donations, we chose the trail from Falmouth to Woods Hole -- and back. The vistas were stunning and it made our hearts happy to see the trail so well used. 

I surely need more saddle time--last week's rides have made me acutely aware that I've not been riding long enough or often enough. Bill's not complaining---guess he's tougher than I am!

A lovely evening prior to shoving off to Redondo Beach and the Vegas nuptials.

8 June - Our LA time is over. What a fun packed week we've had! Son, Geoff Bender, had every second planned. He's a great chauffeur in the LA traffic; he chose excellent restaurants; made plans in advance for events---the grand finale being 14+ hours at Disney. He's going to need a long rest after we all depart. His sister/our daughter, Courtney Bender…
