The day started pretty much like most of our days in Texas, with long, straight, relatively uneventful roads.
Fortunately, the solution to this presented itself in the form of homemade donuts!
And as you might suspect, the day improved markedly! Not only did we see more interesting terrain...
But Paul came to question his religious views. You see, us Catholics have the whole "Body of Christ", Eucharist thing going for us. Well being Lutheran, Paul doesn't have this experience. So needless to say, he was quite enamored of the idea of a church that provided chocolate squares as part of their Sunday ritual!
We finally made it down to the highlight of today's ride, a ferry trip between Galveston and Goat Island. When we arrived, the local animal life had the place completely staked out.
And after a short wait, we were on our way...
Galveston is known for its huge Pelican population, so I was delighted when they decided to pay our ferry a visit as we crossed the passage.
All and all, a good day of riding that took us to Lake Charles, LA. Tomorrow we drop our bikes off for service in Baton Rouge, then two days in New Orleans! Whoo hoo!
