FLORIDA!!! State # 8

Hi Everybody,
The bikers started out back at the ferry landing today at 8:10.  It was a beautiful day along the coastline of Alabama and Florida.  We love all the houses on stilts along the white sand beaches.  Many are painted in pastel colors looking like Easter eggs along the way.  

Dave's finger is doing well.  He says that it doesn't even throb.  Later tonight we will unwrap it and see how it looks.  I won't be able to resist taking a picture so be forewarned.  We are hoping to find no infection and just a nice row of 9 stitches.  I did take a picture of him with the  finger out of his bike glove and sticking straight out as he rode off.

We were not able to find a Good Friday service anywhere close so I feel kind of disconnected from Holy Week events.  Ron called and filled me in on the service at the Lutheran Church last night for the Seder meal.  I bought baskets, plastic eggs, and candy for Sunday for us and we will make every effort to get to a service somewhere.

We are in a KOA campground tonight with a lovely sunset seen through the tall pines.  We are just off HWY 10 in Milton, FL.
The remaining days are down to single digits.  Wow!!  Dave has a gear that isn't working so we will visit a bike shop in Tallahassee in 2 days, actually 3 since Sunday is a day off.  We haven't darkened a bike shop door since Texas.  Hope that statement won't jinx it.

This is short and you are probably glad.  You have all been so gracious with your comments.  thanks again for the encouragement, thoughts, prayers and contributions.

Love and blessings,
