A Gorgeous Day for Pickleball and Bike Riding!

After one of his best night's sleep in a long time, Ken only got up around 7:45. I was actually up before him.  Imagine that!

We were on the pickleball courts by 9 and it was a perfect morning for playing. Plenty of sunshine, but low humidity and it had dropped to 52 degrees this morning.  It was about 62 when we got on the courts!

There were 10 players today so we had to take turns, but we played until 11:30. Throughout those 2 1/2 hours there were some great games and points.  It was a lot of fun.

We sat outside of Waldo relaxing and cooling down before having lunch at the picnic table.  We did some reading and then got ready to drive to Cornwall to the Lebanon Valley Bike Trailhead.  James and Brenda, fellow pickleball players followed us.  The 4 of us got on our bikes and headed towards E-town.  What a nice trail.  Brenda turned around after riding 4 1/2 miles right before the beginning of the Conewago Bike Trail.  That trail ended after 5 more miles, so the 3 of us turned around and headed back to our cars.  It was a perfect day for our 18 mile bike trip.

A beautiful trail that is shaded
a lot of the ride!

James and Brenda's Day 6 bike look so comfortable!

At the end of the 9 mile trail.  What do you mean we have
to turn around and ride back?????

We were back to the CG by 5 and Ken and I decided to sit outside to cool down and relax.  New neighbors had just finished setting up on the site right below us in their Itasca Motorhome.  We chatted with Larry for quite awhile and then his wife, Doris joined in.  By 6 Ken and I headed inside to start prepping dinner. 

After dinner and clean-up, Ken built a campfire and we enjoyed the evening sitting around the fire.  Larry and Doris joined us from 8 to 8:45 when we all decided to head indoors.  They are from Phoenix, AZ and we are looking forward to discussing our west bound itinerary with them to see if they have any recommendations for us when in their area.

Ken and I showered and were in bed by 9:30.  It was a wonderful weather day and a great day of fun exercise.

Just another update on Lulu.  She is still having trouble with diarrhea and vomiting and not eating.  They took her off the critical list and is now considered guarded because her vital signs have improved.  But, the next 2 days are critical as far as whether she will be able to  "pull through".
