2 more days to go

We did a double day again today which ,ean only 2 more days to the finish. I don't think about the finish, I try not to. I have to think about tomorrow only.
Today we went from Montagu to McGregor to Kasra. Carol' our host at McGregor gave us the ,ost welcoming of welcomes. Appare tly she was tracking us and knew that we arrived in town. There she was, standing in the middle of the street, for all to see, waving her arms and jumping up and down to show us where to go. What a welcome! Thank you Carol! And what a lunch, superb.
From there we had to press on against a headwind to the farm Kasra. Alda our host is pulling out all the stops to make us welcome and to feed this ever ongoing hunger.
Pampering is what I needed today. I have fallen so many times, sand, loose rocks, stupidity, lack of concentration......bruises on top of last week's bruises. Optsite on top of optsite. (Those plasters that cover wounds for 7 days non stop) Cuts and scratches......But nothing takes away the beauty of the scenery or the experience of the ride.
One day at a time.
