“This couldn’t have been a better birthday on or off the road.”
Breakfast at Phoebe’s.
Meet Rose. Awwweeeeee.
String cheese (how did she know we love string cheese?!), brownies, Cytomax, and directions to Charlottesville. So much love. We want Phoebe to be our auntie.
PBJ on Ezekiel bread! We had such similar tastes.
Phoebe does incredible work as an investigator for the Innocence Project at the University of Virginia School of Law. She offered to take our gear into town since she was going there anyway and we got to have a fun 10 mile birthday ride.
Dormitory area designed by Thomas Jefferson.
Bagel from Bodo’s.
Raiding free samples at a gourmet market.
I ordered a cake from Abermarle last night. “Umm, can you spell Krusher?”
Phoebe, Lily, and her friend Megan joined us for cake. It was an actual birthday party.
Bye to our new friends 😦
We didn’t leave Charlottesville until 3:30pm, and it was time well spent. After being lost for half an hour we started our 55 mile ride to Mineral.
Matt pretended to grab this old lady on a walk and then she turned around while I was holding the camera. It was hard not to laugh.
Matt playing softball with random people in the countryside.
Got to Mineral’s Volunteer Fire Station around 9 or 9:30pm. We took showers, used their kitchen, and watched music videos on the country channel. The firemen were bagging on each other all night. All we can say is there was some sort of sex act caught on tape and they were trying to find who was who.
We set up tent outside right next to the train tracks — we were so sleepy neither of us woke up once.
