Windsor au Couture

Stopping at Roger Majorowitz's Sculpture Garden in Alna
We had a simply splendid ride last Saturday from Vassalboro around China Lake, with great weather and a great turnout.  Jeanine led us on great tour around the lake, and even took us down a little-traveled back road to an historic cemetery in China, the last resting place for a former slave, who was as far away from his home as...well, China.  And in keeping with the theme of near and far, Jeanine had us gather for a group photo in front of the International Signpost in So. China - a nice touch.  Thanks, Jeanine!  And if you are near this Saturday, you don't have to go far to find another great ride, as Leanne will take us on a tour of the Sheepscot River valley from Windsor to Alna.  As always, see you then!
