La Grange to Navasota 68 miles

Today we stopped just outside of La Grange, past highway 71, at the Texas One Stop for breakfast. They have a bakery with a large selection of pastries. Kye followed us until we reached Burton where she took highway 290 home. She got to experience all the antique places around Round Top. This last weekend they had their big sales. I had never seen so many tents.

Today, I also started noticing a strange sound when I was in my top 4 gears. I though my chain was dry since we rode in the rain a lot, so I stopped in Round Top and purchased some 3 in 1 oil. I really don’t like to use oil but I thought the chain needed something. It didn’t seem to help much.

The day was basically up and down rolling hills but we didn’t get rained on, but only by the shortest margin. We did pass a drilling rig and Ed and Frank had to get pictures.

We pulled into the First United Methodist church in Navasota just before it started to rain. A lot of our team were not so lucky. We stayed in the Fellowship Hall, which also had a shower in both the men and women’s restroom. Nice, clean and hot water. What else could you ask for.

After the rain stopped and I had written the update for 10/07/18, we explored the town for a place to eat. The choices were not great in the downtown area but we did have some good ice cream in an old time ice cream shop.

Then an early quit for the night.
