it was another beautiful day for riding, with perfect temps and sun. I was unusually slow getting up and ready this morning and when it came time for riding, I was just not feeling it. I gave myself a day off and road the van into Elizabeth City and spent the afternoon sleeping. There was a 3.5 mile ride across an inlet, picture below. Emily, our wonderful cook/chef, made home made biscuits, beef stew and salad for dinner. Attached is a picture of the charcoal-fired Dutch ovens she uses to prepare meals. It’s amazing what great food she can produce. I’ll be back on my bike tomorrow, for our last day in NC and our entrance into VA.
