Good first day

I had a good first day. I ended up riding 51.3 miles. I was spent at 40 and asked my GPS to route me to a campground that was 3 miles away. Instead it took me 10 miles out of the way! When I realized the Garmin was playing an evil joke on me, I used my iPhone to route me to the nearest Best Western and lucked out with a ground level room there. You can see the 10 mile loop at the bottom of the map. Then on top of that, Heyoka got all mad about it and bit me.Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 7.33.33 PM


Today, I left around 10 a.m. Rode through St. Augustine and only had to ask for directions 3 times.IMG_1567 IMG_1570

Here’s on the road. Somewhere on a Florida country road. Pretty boring for awhile!






I tried to take a moving shot of some egrets, but regretfully, they didn’t show up in the picture.IMG_1574 I stopped at Molasses Junction and had a delicious pork butt bbq and fries & a cookie.IMG_1575 Here’s the Molasses Junction restaurant.IMG_1576 This was along the St. Johns river. I love the moss hanging from the trees.IMG_1578More boring farmland, but very pretty.

Here’s the restaurant next door where I dined.IMG_1585 I had the fish you see in the background. Really hungry.IMG_1587

  1. glad you had a good start. tell Heyoka & Garmin that there will be a tally of bad behavior along the way and punishments to be dealt with after returning safely home. Maybe heyoka will think before he bites you again & garmin will be more accurate. be safe!

    • Enjoyed time with Dick today, he even rode with me. Had lunch and we will do it again soon. Enjoy, but rest when you need to, and be aware of your surroundings, suspicious characters, etc. :-). All the things you would say to your daughter.
