Some times a day off is a good thing

Sunday we biked to Watertown NY, after a full 7 days of riding. We were booked 2 nights in the Holiday Inn Express. The following day, Monday had 2 optional loop rides or you could take it as a duff day and not ride.

Turns out that we needed the pause in riding. We had planned on Tuesday (today) to take a ferry to Kingston to cross into Canada. However we discovered that the ferry is not running. It took all day Monday to re-route the day's ride to cross into Canada via two bridges and add 25 miles to the route. In addition, we wouldn't be able to ride our bikes on the busy bridges, we had to walk our bike across each mile long bridge. So if you view our photos below, you will see us pushing our bikes on some very narrow walkways on the bridges.

At least we all got to Kingston with no issues to report.

Kingston is a beautiful college town and we are fortunate to stay on the campus of Queen's University in their dormitories. I've stayed in collage dorms on previous trips and it's always a neat experience. Our breakfast tomorrow morning will be dining hall before scooting off. Tomorrow's trip is to Belleville, Ontario and will be a bit long at 73 miles
