Day 48, July 21: Ashland to Yorktown, VA

After exactly 100 miles we arrived in Yorktown. Hard to believe the day would actually come.  The swim almost revived us enough to start pedaling back to San Francisco!  After all, it would be a shame to let our excellent shape go to waste. 

What an historic and quant village and what’s not to love about Williamsburg. 

Got home to Newton Saturday night.  Got on the scale and lost a few pounds 19 as far as I can tell.  Approximately 174 before the ride and 155 after…..   Wowza!!!   Now to curb the 6,000 calorie diet!    More to come….

I’m writing this in advance as I likely won’t have time tomorrow as my wife, Sue and my sister, Leslie and her husband, Dennis,  are meeting us at the finish line and swim in the Atlantic.  

Dennis sent me an e-mail reminding me that tomorrow on our way to Yorktown we will be going close to the Gaines’  Mill Civil War battlefield where my great great grandfather (on my mother’s side) Samuel W. Waldron, Jr. served with the Union Army in late June 1862. He was also a secretary to Abraham Lincoln.  
More to come…..
