Today’s ride got off to an ominous start with the threat of rain and a thunderstorm. So I squeezed my new, recently ordered bike rain jacket into my bike bag and off I rode. It was a 95 mile day which turned into 100 with some poor directions on our cue sheet. Not to worry, though, I buddied up with Twila and Charlene and together along with asking a few folks, we found our way to the bridge to cross the Mississippi River. It was a great ride up the bridge and we stopped for pictures of the muddy river view! Again we rode through countryside. Lots of farms and crawfish–in fact, everywhere. They say it is the lobster of the South, and I say I will PASS.
I followed my bike buddies to the Inn that they are staying at and the other half of us are at the Greenwood B&B in separate cottages. Mine is the Pond…can you guess why? I have my own room and two other riders are sharing a room. We have a little living room, kitchen and porch that looks out over the POND! I will post pictures tomorrow as it is thundering and raining now. Supposed to be sunny and 44 tomorrow–that is fine for a rest day! It has been warm and humid. So we are spread out for the rest day in separate cottages and the Inn is about 3 miles away!
Look for my picture tomorrow as this B&B is on beautiful acreage. As always, I think of everyone supporting my efforts and today, I used your energy at mile 67 when I needed a break. We found an old country store in who knows where and I bought a REAL coke to have with my Peanut Butter sandwich! Bingo! I was revived and cruised the next 33 miles on your help!!!! Thank You
