Day 45: Vancleave

Back on the road again for an easy 80 miles on a sunny April day.

Last night there was some heavy rain, thunder and lightning and the campsite we were supposed to travel to today was effectively a pond! So we had to travel an extra 6 miles to the Journey's End Campsite. Adjacent to which is the Shed (BBQ and Blues Venue) where we had dinner and listened to a 13 and 16 year old girls singing the blues!

The Shed

Apparently a few days ago there were waves of water coming through the campsite; Jo said that her friend in Florida was reporting that 26.5 inches of rain have fallen in 48 hours (it does not seem possible); and the group doing this tour one week ahead of us are stuck in a hotel in Tallahassee! A week is a long time in bike touring! (to misquote Rab Butler)
