Blog for today:

Oh dear, what to write today.   I guess it is a really important day, but its getting late again and i want to get to bed before tomorrow, the last day.  Hmmm, so a great ride, we didn't get the 6 breakfasts we had planned for, but had one amazing one.  Roads were mostly good, especially when we got off the main road.  It was even better, even the hills were great and effortlessly to climb.  Tomorrow will be interesting, emotional.  Not sure if I will have time to do a blog tomorrow either.  It's always best to write it as soon as you can so you can add in all the detail and fun things which happened that day.  Exciting, nervous, scared, sleepless night????
