Another foggy morning in bayou country. Breakfast is the usual time, 7 AM but RO and I don’t hit the road until 8 AM. Rand says he’ll join us along the way.
It is very humid and foggy as we start our ride but starts to clear around 9:30.
The road is very rural today, very few cars as we start our ride. Not many hills so we start at a fast pace not the usual first hour of warm up. It is already warm and humid.
We stop for a smoothie around the 20 mile point, our first sag. The owner gives us ice for our camelbaks, an amazing treat.
Soon after the sag we hit the Alabama line, Rand is with us from the coffee shop. The traffic and the headwind both increase. Our easy ride has become a lot harder as we fight the wind.
Lunch stop at 48 miles, Cajun Salad, crawdad and shrimp salad.
Long causeway leads to Daulphin Island bridge.
Pretty camp at Daulphin Island, lots of trees and beautiful beach. We go for a swim and water temp is 80 deg.
Quiet rest day, sleep late, read, tour of island.
A little swim in the Gulf before supper with RO as Steve recharges his super powers on the beach. Then a relaxed dinner of Bubba’s Chicken Picata.
