A great night in Sulphur, LA but 8:00 A.M. was departure time. A beautiful morning, cool and slightly cloudy. A perfect day to ride across the enchanting Atchafalaya Swamp, the largest swamp in North America. Bikes running perfectly, if a bit fast. What has happened? I feel ten years younger than I did last week. Maybe it is the mystery and thrill of this new adventure.
Tonight Ricardo and I are in a nice inn here in Meridian, MS. A great dinner tonight with all of the chocolate chip cookies we could eat. And free--imagine that. Tomorrow we have a 150 mile ride to Bessemer, Al., the home of my two grandsons. We will spend a couple of days there before departing for Natural Bridge, VA. Yes, but don't remind me. I know rain is forecast!
