I’m listening to the sound of the surf pushing a million round pebbles up the beach, only to have them roll back down again as the water retreats. I’m walking down a beach that never seems to end. A cool wind coming off of Lake Superior alternates with a warm breeze from the south. Now I’m watching a sunset with ever changing skies that’s lasted nearly two hours.
This is Agawa Bay on Lake Superior.
My post today was going to start with the usual: I battled against a 25km headwind blah, blah, blah. The heat was exhausting blah, blah, blah. The hills were long and never ended, and so on.
All of that was washed away with a walk along the beach, letting the cool water swirl around my toes, and watching the sun go down.
Now I’m laying in my tent listening to the surf. It’s so peaceful that I’m struggling to stay awake.
And I got here on my own power. No car, no gas, and no smelly exhaust fumes.
This is cycle touring at it’s finest.
