through it didn't *quite* go the way i envisioned, i have now bicycled around Onondaga Lake. clockwise, which i feel was a good energetic choice for today.
the last leg being interrupted by the gates being closed, and strident amphitheater lackeys, and diverting myself onto 690, and then trying to cut through from Lakeland and ending up taking my 3.75 month-post-op ankle up and down nine feet of crushed stone as someone led me through their yard, the woods, the train tracks, and back onto the bicycle path...
since i'm home safe, that's all just a good story. :D and there were LOTS of hawks: at least three or four. or the same hawk, multiple times, following me. :)
today, i gave directions (on Hiawatha, to a pair of walkers) and got directions (from the guy, above). i ate more amazing vegan buffalo chicken wings (YUM) and met up with Jen for a bit. i got to do the Fair two days with two different friends, even if only for a tiny stretch. i saw the Native American dancers yesterday with Natalie, and talked to one of the gladiolus judges today. i avoided being seen my ex-coworkers at the massage booth, but was sad to see the woman who always had the booth next to Elan is now gone. i hope she's OK. :(
two good days, though. :)
