Happy Diwali

Diwali, Divali, Deepavali symbolizes the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance." Our destination for this ride was the park, managed by The Peace Abbey, including statue of Mahatma Gandhi and 60+ bronze plaques honoring significant pacifists throughout the world.

In short time, the cold morning warmed up as the sun broke through the clouds. Roads were very pleasant most of the day, little traffic, winding narrow roads, & sun peeking between the trees.

We stopped at Lookout Farm for mulled & hard cider too early before they opened at 11:30. Instead, we continued to Charles River Coffee for hot drinks & sandwiches.

There was a stretch of busy road before we got back on very quiet roads back to Lexington.
