Blasted by a northerly…

I took this together shot of Claus and Cindy before I headed out of Ft Lauderdale


…by their pool …..
This is my first post using one finger on my phone, so you’ll be glad it’ll be short on words.
Today has been payback day: a northerly head wind after the SE tailwind of yesterday.


It has been ‘redemptive’…….I hope….;o). The senses are bombarded by visuals along US highways


…and many of them are directed at me, a cyclist. It’s nice to know that State authorities have my welfare at heart, but I have made a note of the finger-wagging.
Part of my journey to Ft Pierce included a stretch along a barrier island road that was populated with grand houses like this


…and you know you’ve made in life when your property has its own service road


I believe I passed Tiger Woods place, and I’m disappointed he didn’t invite me in for refreshment….nothing like promoting UK/US entente cordial.
This post is uploaded courtesy of MaCD’s free wifi……so now full of burger and fries, I head out once again to do battle with the wind, and find a campground.
(Postscript to yesterday: the tube mended sufficiently to get me to a cycle shop, and then gave up the ghost 20 miles later).

  1. AH, I see you rode through beautiful Jupiter Island. You also passed Celina Dion’s estate, and countless other billionaires! Hope you find a great place to camp tonight 🙂

  2. Interesting to see the sign referring to bicyclists whereas here we would just refer to them as cyclists.

  3. The land of the free likes to wag its finger! Bon voyage!
