Report: Nice to have Blake show up so that I didn't have to ride alone.

We startled a squirrel early on and it went nuts trying to figure out how to get past a picket fence. Comical.

We saw the fire department deployed in Saint Leonard. They were doing a controlled burn/training session on a small old framed house that has been abandoned for many months. We rode through a bit of the smoke, I hope nothing toxic was burning!

Rt. 4 is getting repaved south of Prince Frederick and the right turn lanes are milled but not the shoulder. Odd.

We very much enjoyed the air conditioning at Bowen's Market. It got even better when we opened the drink cabinets. Loved that blast of cold air!

Lots of friendly people out and about today. The heat wasn't getting them  down!
