(You thought I was talking about Barack? I think he's going to be on the other island off the Cape.)
Next week's a big biking excursion for us. First, Liz and I take a ferry over to Provincetown, then we bike down to the other ferry to Nantucket. Should be a blast. Anyway, we've been doing a little bit of training by doing some loops of the Charles River. We'd been using this map to track our distances. But, in our classic map-illiterate fashion, we misread the distances as lengths of one side of the river, not as loops. So, in effect, we were doubling our estimated travel. Good times. If there's ever been two people who can get lost holding not only a Google Maps printout with detailed directions of how to get from point A to Point B but also a GPS system, it's me and Liz. Hope we don't get lost forever next week.
I came up with this theme whilst doing the loop this past Sunday. You'd think the body of water theme presented itself while looking at the Charles or thinking of the ferry. Nope, it was when we had passed a 71-Across truck and I was off to the races.
Share the puzzle. New one on Friday.
