Yesterday we rode just over 200 miles. It was, as always, a blast! We went to Ponce De Leon Florida, further west than we have ever ridden on a day trip. It's our goal to seek out local restaurants and ride to eat.
Sally's restaurant was on that list. It was worth the ride. Old fashioned diner type cooking and a local crowd.
I saw the BBQ joint on the way home so we may need to make another trip westward and check this out.
I like riding over bridges and this ride had several. I will slaughter the name if I try and pronounce it. Choctawahatchee River.
One of my views. It's like riding behind a storm trooper. It's a nice Nolan helmet, Doug's latest helmet in the collection.
This bridge was very cool. A train trestle was visible across the water. This doesn't do it justice!
The sky was a gorgeous blue, great weather too. The temperatures were an amazingly comfortable 75 F. Check out the birds soaring around the trees.
As we go through many little towns we see lots of churches. Seems the smaller the town, the more churches it supports....somehow. I like the old brick structures.
Another bridge photo. This bridge was long and you could see the dam from the middle. It is an impressive structure!
There are always lots of fields we pass and again, I can't do the raw beauty of the land justice with my puny iPhone. We love rural rides.
That was yesterday. Today we met another couple who have a trike and went to the St Mark's Wildlife Refuge. I saw an alligator! More on that trip later.
Happy riding to anyone else who enjoys!!
