The eve before they stormed “la bastille”

July 13th.. Fête des lampions.   On the bike today it was a run for the shade.   Turn left or right, no matter, as long as there were trees to go under we made the turns.  Sometimes I wonder the value of going  out in this weather. I better not ask around unless I want to hear ” You are nuts” for going.   Well in any case,  Gabriel and I, we did it.  Two abuelitos sin sombreros.  Elsewhere, the Tour de France racers, braved the Pyrenees mist and the 20% slopes.   Your contenders upsetting the “old guard”  It was fun to watch, but I can’t help thinking that just last year in Bagnères de Bigorre.   Michele and I watch the Tour together.. That thought bring a huge pinch to my heart.2016-07-10 11.47.13
