Today we rode 79 miles, from Nauvoo to Galesburg,we stopped for lunch at mile 60. We had Mexican which is weird because we haven’t seen Hispanics or Mexican food since Texas. We both inhaled “VERY HUGE ” burritos – as the menu described them – and we rode the last 18 miles.
The last 18 miles we got into a race, with the rain. We saw dark clouds and heard thunder. Sergio yelled “the storm is coming” with urgency, but Winona strolled along until she saw lightening. We booked it and rode the final 18 miles in under 1:15.
Showered and dry we looked out the window to this scene:
We’re celebrating with more Mexican food (and Starbucks – thanks to Marissa, again!!!).
