I rode 61.2 miles today. Only 338 miles to go! The ride was pretty boring, the new route stayed inland more, so I didn’t see much of the coast. But on the other hand, I didn’t have to fight the headwinds as much. I’m at another Super 8. This time it went a little smoother. The front desk still had to work out how to get me in a ground floor. This part of Panama City is mostly blue collar and industrial looking, no spectacular beaches here. I didn’t get to see Panama City Beach, but I’m sure it’s as pretty as any so far. With the white sand and the emerald green waters, these are the prettiest beaches I’ve seen. I ate at a Mexican restaurant called Pepper’s tonight to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Good food and two for 1 beers too.
Here’s the map from today and some pictures:
Here’s where all the Carilon profits go. They added an extra L just to confuse us. Saw the sign, but not the beaches. A small maritime museum. Reminded me of a Ricky Lee Jones song about eating peaches on the beaches. The clouds didn’t really look this ominous. The camera sees things differently. Sea shell excursions.
Tomorrow is Apalachicola.
