we moved a bit slower this morning, a little hesitant as we pulled into sharon’s cafe where we had left off. we unloaded bikes, the stereo quiet.
we knew we had dodged a bullet. dale brought us together for a prayer and we headed out. the weather was hot, it got over 100 degrees, humidity was high and we were all sluggish. we met a couple of riders from houston training for an ironman, had a late lunch, said goodbye to todd and russ.
it was dale, lincoln and i after lunch, it seemed cooler, traffic lite, breeze on our back and flat, we clicked off some miles. we had a dinner with jerry sanford, a new friend who brought us a great gumbo dinner, jerry is part of a cycling club that found our story on line, true southern hospitality.
good friends brad rendell and dave wright have arrived for a few days, tomorrow we should roll into sitsbee tx, our last night in texas.
i am guessing about 1200 miles to go……….
