Finally, we got some good rain. It rained from about 4.30-9.30 last night and 9.00-1.00 today. Now you can’t deny a frog and turtle some habitat after it’s rained for the first time in two months. So we went for a long detour ride to the takeaway shop that included some habitat time along the river. (Our ride was 14 kms – it is about 1.25 kms directly to the takeaway shop.)
I had a piece of grilled fish at home I wanted to eat, but I also wanted to test out my guts and see if we could eat fried chips. Potatoes have been a staple for me the past couple months, and the only way I think I’m keeping the weight loss at bay. But fried foods give me problems even when I’m healthy, so I wanted to see if I could tolerate a little bit of grease. This will make going out to eat with friends a little easier if I can manage a few chips. So a long trip to the takeaway shop rounded out our Sunday afternoon and qualified as a CLC ride..
