The bike path we use is lined with fruit trees. The cherry trees have been very prolific this year.
There is fruit on the trail. Cherries aren't so bad, but when the apples start dropping, one must avoid them. They're big and slippery.
Yesterday's stage of the Tour de France went up the Col du Tourmalet and then down the other side. It's a gruesome climb and a challenging descent. We rode it in 2003 with a TdF bike tour. Actually Jim rode all of it, and I did some of it in the van. Yesterday's descent in the race was complicated by cows.
The cows in France are huge.
Jim has gone to Bainbridge Island for a funeral. His best friend from high school died. It's very weird when one's contemporaries begin dying of health related issues. I keep wondering how did we get so damn old. I believe I will go for a brisk up hill walk now, to possibly stave off some decay.
