Georgetown on a cool, clear, crisp autumn day. On arrival at the
waterfront in Georgetown, we stopped briefly for a photo opportunity. Ryan
came well equipped with a digital camera with a tripod. As the native of the
group, Joanne took the opportunity to show off her knowledge of local
landmarks. We parked our bikes and began the most formidable task of the
day--finding a restaurant for lunch. Some wanted one with a bathroom, while
others required a TV on which to watch football. We compromised by stopping
at the Alamo Grill, which had a little something for everyone--TV, bathrooms,
and hot food.
After lunch, we began the ride back together. Donna, Ryan, and Christine
broke from the group. Ryan and Christine got lost and ended up taking a
detour back to Bethesda, where we all met up again.
KC and Donna were absent from the trail end in Bethesda, so Ryan graciously
and heroically offerred to go back to look for Donna. I told everyone to
stay put, while I checked back at the cars, where I found them patiently
waiting. A few of us then went for coffee.
A lovely autumn bike ride was had by all.
