A good day and not too exhausting. I am now in shorts for the first time in 2016,lounging around waiting for Brian and Beth to return from their trip to the state capital building. Mark and I did laundry, both mine and Brian’s. You’re most welcome brother. It is so nice to have clean clothes again.
We played name an iconic saying from a classic movie on the ride today in honor of the Oscars which none of us stayed up to watch. Mark came up with the most sayings. A few samples: “WILSONNNN”, “Here’s looking at you Babe”, “Life is like a box of chocolates”, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home”, to name a few. That took our mind off the pedaling for a few hours today.
We are all very impressed with the roads in Florida. By far, the smoothest we have ridden on our cross country adventure. Most of the time we have had a bike lane. We have now ridden thru two cities in Florida, Pensacola and Tallahassee. Neither one has been a problem. We’ll see what it’s like riding out of Tallahassee tomorrow morning. Another observation is Google bike directions took us thru the campus of Florida State to get to our hotel. We were on ‘Legacy Walk’ its entire length. No cars, just students walking and biking between classes. Another first for Southern Tier.
Matt flew in tonight so he will be with us the rest of our ride to St. Augustine. His bike is already assembled so he’s ready. It will be nice to have him along. Time to go to sleep. Gotta take care of this old body.
