Miles today: 73
Another hot day, but the ride wasn't too bad. About half way through, we got to talking to two men in their yard. They were in their 70s and had been friends since they were 15. One was a woodworker, and he gave us a tour of his wood shop on his property and some of the projects he was working on. They also told us about a church in Sebree that would let us stay for free, but they weren't sure exactly where it was. We had a nice chat with them, filled up our water and went on our way.
A cool thing happened this afternoon- a man pulled over in front of us and waved us down to pull over. He handed us three giant ripe tomatoes that he had just picked from his garden and said "there you go, now all you need is salt!" I'm pretty sure that something like that would never happen at home, and it really made us so happy. The kindness of strangers takes places in many different forms and never ceases to amaze me!
The highlight of today was our evening with Violet and Pastor Bob. We rode a long 71 miles into Sebree, hoping to find the church that we had heard of that would let us stay.
