Day 45 – Recovery Day

So after a long hard day yesterday, what we really needed was a recovery day. That is exactly what we go – only 56 miles of riding.  After 44 days, finding it difficult to know what to talk about today. I think that’s not too bad after 45 days to have 1 day that is uneventful. 

After the long ride yesterday, I treated myself finally to a massage from Michelle who has been traveling with us temporarily. It was right before I went to bed, and money well spent!

We traveled with hwy 90 today, so straight and no turns, so it was kind of boring — no disrespect intended; it is kind of what you make it. We had a great local lunch at Simply Good BBQ. Thank goodness it was a short day–amazing that we now call a 56-mile day short.

We are at a nice campground in DeFuniak Springs, where the campground hosts will be providing dinner and breakfast for us, plus a local country music singer as entertainment tonight.

The photo above is from a farm along the route, quite amazing carving! We talked to a local gentleman at a gas station who was 86 years young, had lived in the area all his life and never learned to ride a bike, so he just thought our bike ride was amazing! As we were talking, Duane rode by on his recumbent and our new friend let out a laugh.
