Today we had breakfast in a local café. A number of the local people were interested in our journey. They, like numerous people thought we were a little crazy but respected our cause.
The food was very good and very plentiful so we had a lot of energy to start our day. We didn’t have any major climbs today, but I did have a memorable stop, which is why I needed a clean Texas jersey. Today we rode thru the city of “Texas, New York”
The city??? May have had 100 people and the only stores were auto mechanics stores. There weren’t any stop signs or light on the road that we used to riding through their town. One other important bit of information, if we were to take the highway south out of Texas we would have ridden into Mexico. One of the locals told us he takes that road about once a week to see how the wall is progressing.
Another point of interest on today’s route is that it is called the Great Lakes Seaway Trail.
We had to get in early because Ed’s sister, Loraine, came to Sodus Point to have dinner with him. She lives a little over an hour away. She came all decked out in a yellow tee shirt which said “My brother rides a bike for MS. She also had a large sign so we couldn’t miss her.
We are staying at Camp DeMolay which over looks Lake Ontario.
You are in our neck of the woods
I do enjoy reading your accounts, like sitting with you and visiting! George gave a good summary of your trip comments this week but did not mention one of my favorite comments–the local who said he usually took the road to Mexico to check the progress of the wall, thought that was clever of him, thanks for sharing. Love your comment about the goodness of the people you have the joy of meeting and their generosity. Keep up your beautiful spirit, David. Praying for yours and co-riders health and safety. Blessings, maxine
Maxine, Sorry it took me so long to reply but this is the first time I really had a chance to respond. I really appreciate all your prayers and support
