Day 38: What a Difference a Day Makes

Our accommodations change every evening. Last night was an armory that we shared with thirty others. Tonight we got a room to ourselves at a bed & breakfast. We were very appreciative because only the couples got their own room at this location. And we were given the suite: private bath, bedroom, and sitting area. We did have to share our bathroom for post-ride showers. A small price to pay  


Our ride was short, only 36 miles, so we took time out to visit Audubon Memorial State Park and Oakley Plantation in St Francisville, LA. The most interesting fact was that John James Audubon, famous naturalist/painter and namesake for the National Audubon Society, killed his subjects and posed them for his paintings.

A little over five miles into our ride we crossed another milestone, the Mighty Mississippi. We are now back on the “right side of the river and headed toward the Atlantic Ocean. As far as bridges goes, this was not a hard one for me to cross. My phobia did not kick in due to the wide shoulder and high guardrail.

Note: we have completed 2,123 miles so far
