Erie Canal day 2
We had a pleasant ride today, 53 miles from Medina and ending in Pittsford. Had lunch at mile 33, then stopped for a swim at mile 44 at an outdoor olympic pool in Rochester. We did 2500m for those of you interested. Finished up with a few easy miles rolling into Pittsford. All told we started at 815AM and finished around 330PM. We're not in a hurry and are riding fat tires.
We are staying in a nice B&B tonight, it is very roomy and the town is cool, we may just stay here for a couple day and relax. Just kidding. Pictures below:

Ever where the term "Podunk town" came from?
The underwater road, been on a couple of these over the years:
