Brian wasn’t feeling well this morning so he decided to have a rest day. I hope he feels better tomorrow. Today’s ride was fast and we were surprised after yesterday’s flat ride to encounter some decent hills and also enjoyed being chased twice by dogs. The day started at 45 degrees and we ended at around 1:30 in the afternoon with temp around 60. Sunny all day, too. A perfect day for riding.
A disgusting caloric fat filled breakfast except for the oatmeal and pineapple. I was hungry all night last night and really stuffed myself.
An interesting chimney from a mill dating back to the Civil War. This was near the bluffs overlooking Pensacola Bay.
The results of a tornado that hit four days ago. Four houses were demolished and you could see the path of destruction as the tornado crossed the roadway.
We rode with these military veterans for about 5 miles on a trail. They are on a three day bike tour in this part of Florida to help raise awareness for wounded warriors. All of them are Purple Heart recipients.
A giant testicle tree on one of the back roads we enjoyed today.
Not a car in sight.
Many times have encountered trains while riding on US Route 90.
