One exciting moment today was a dog started chasing us. We had just bought some dog spray at the bike shop in Danville. So as Bob was yelling, I took aim and got him right in the face. It is like a pepper spray and only stuns him for a few minutes. But my aim was right on and he sat down and didn't bark or whine. Just put his face down. I don't think he will chase cyclists anymore. The scariest part is if the dog gets in front of your tire when you are going down a hill.
Thought for the day- Mishaps can turn into great experiences. We weren't supposed to be in Danville, but because the bike needed a mechanic we ended up seeing a lovely town, met a great guy at the bike shop, and took a wonderful detour seeing all kinds of colleges, art, and landscape. I appreciate the unexpected mystery of the unplanned events of our trip.
