Day 32 July 11
We took our usual morning dog walk, and checked out our new campground. We met some of our neighbors, and got the low-down on the area. All of the folks we met were from nearby towns. And all of the folks we met were super chatty (in a good way)…must be something in the Kentucky water.
Despite the heat and humidity, we rode our bikes to the TVA Kentucky Dam, and then over to Grand Rivers. I was sweating like a pig. Mark barely broke a sweat. Weird, ‘cause at home, Mark has to turn on the a/c at the first hint of humidity, which, in San Diego, is like negligible. And yet, in Kentucky, on this day, it was about 90% humidity. Why wasn’t he sweating?!
When we got to Grand Rivers, we stopped at a little ice cream/smoothie shop and got a nice cold ice slushy to cool off. Next, we hit the local bike shop, where we got the scoop on some local bike rides from the very nice and very chatty owner. Again, I wondered about the Kentucky water and the chatty peeps.
We rode a little further up the road, and then turned around. It was just so hot and humid, and we still had a ways to ride back to our campground. Plus, we’d left the dogs in the space shuttle with the a/c running, which is great, but, I still worried about them. We’d told the campground host that we were leaving the dogs with the a/c on, but to please call us if the electric went out at the park. But I still worried!
When we arrived back at the campground, the dogs were nice and cool and happy in the rv. And we were thoroughly exhausted from our ride. Spent the rest of the day just hanging out and talking with our nice neighbors.
