Day 50: Funny Business

Today we said good-bye to our tents; we will not need them any longer. They have been our personal space and refuge from cold and rain and darkness for 49 nights. Farewell Kelty #T7! 

Today we pedaled 86 miles’ our 2nd longest day of the trip, to High Springs, FL. Bubba said it best about the scenery, “Texas has nothing on north Florida when it comes to wildflowers.” So true, the picture does not do justice to the vibrant pinks, fuscias, lavender and purple and every shade in between of wild phlox that grew in huge patches along the road side.

On our way to our camp, we made a stop at 9:30 AM at Dixie Grille for the “best bread pudding around,” although it might have been a bit too early for that much bourbon in their famous sticky sauce!

With our days together drawing to an end,we seem to find more reasons to laugh together. Tonight at dessert time, Mickey (“Snowflake”) provided the comic relief. It is usually Bubba pulling a fast one on one of us, but tonight the only person who could get away with it pummeled her dear one with a plate full of whipped cream! Ever the detective, Bubba caught on a split second before the dairy smash as he saw 1 too many cell phone camera
pointed his way! Unfortunately, Bubba was able to return the prank on Mickey, and the picture is now one of my favorites and will make me smile every time I see it for many days to come! We love you guys!!
