📍 A Point on the Timeline
Went cycling in Wales. We covered less distance in more time than originally planned. Turns out terrain makes a big difference! And the extra weight of a week’s supplies doesn’t help either.
I used all the gears. And, it turns out sometimes you have to pedal when going downhill, if it’s windy enough.

Cathedrals are weird. Not because they’re old or the religious iconography, but because they accumulate stuff. Chester cathedral seemed particularly weird. I’m not even talking interment of someone who loves hunting, the bell from the fire department, or the Lego replica of the building. But does it need its own version of Monopoly? Or a nook dedicated to animal trafficking? And, what’s this!?
Next time, pack fewer things!

I took a few pictures. Mostly, I walked, cycled and admired the scenary.
