Day 5 - Rest Day (Geneva)

And that's what I'm doing. Slept until 7am for a change, had a big breakfast, did some minor bike maintenance, dried stuff out, and got on the bike and headed into town. Not sure yet how I'll be spending the rest of the day, but I don't see a big ride happening. Nice park and beach on Seneca Lake, lunch, ice cream, maybe a nap somewhere. Big day tomorrow, so I'll just take it easy today.
Wandered around town, biked and sat in park by lake. Had lunch at Wyatt's, a big Philly cheese steak smothered in onions and peppers. Amazing how much I can eat on this trip! Went to ATM, then back to park for awhile. Bike tipped over at lunch stop and scratched paint - need to touch up later. Beach is kinda weedy and smelly, but does appear to be open. Went east on 5/20 to Hess/Byrne Dairy for ice cream, then back to park. Called Holly, then back through town to campsite. Sodas, shower, dinner plans. Entire SWC contingent to Italian place for dinner @5pm. Sat in shade, read for awhile, organized for morning. Took free shuttle to Italian restaurant. It got a 5.5/8 approval rating, with strong dissent loudly voiced. Enough said about that. Back to tent, organized some more. Hoping for an early start to a long day.
