Yesterday we made good progress, our total mileage was 68.2! Slightly after dusk we arrived at a campground for cyclists and, boy was it beautiful! Unfortunately we woke up too late (That’s a shocker!) to get good misty photos of the site, but this shows what we awoke to:
We made it to Alabama! I had a bit of a crash and skinned my knee pretty badly, hopefully the swelling will go down! Just incase, once we get to Tupelo (7 miles away!) we’re going to take a half day rest.
We had a nice hearty breakfast of gummy worms and oatmeal and puttered around to the next restaurant.
Out of the several Mexican restaurants we’ve been to, three were in a dry county and the one we went to for lunch today was one of them. Dad kept hoping and praying for a wet county, and I guess he got what he wanted because around three in the afternoon we got caught in a bad thunderstorm that didn’t let up until almost 4:30, and even then we cycled through the rain. There were quite a few priceless moments that we couldn’t capture, but it was a beautiful ride.
1,234 miles down, 750 to go! Time flies much to quickly!
We did the math, and by the end of this trip I will have 36 donuts!
Dad finally got his “wet county” at the absolute BEST Mexican restaurant we’ve been to! We had a wonderful sampler platter with a warm strawberry daiquiri cheesecake. Mmm, Mmm, good!
And, of course, dad got his beer.
