We waited for the rain to ease up before we took off this morning. Lucky for us, it is a gentle
rain and not too cold. Things were going as scheduled until I decided to it would be more fun to
take a ferry across the river than some boring bridge. So we followed the sign that indicated
where the ferry was. After riding about 4K in the rain and sand, our gears, wheels and brakes

Once we got across the rive, I notice that my bike computer was dangling from my handlebar so I yelled at Aaron to stop. We were assessing the damage when some "goofy" American bicyclist comes up behind and asks us where we are from. Mind you, this is out in the country away from all civilization. We were quite surprised to see him. He was Mike from NC-a Pollock from Penn State. He was 29 year old school teacher on his way to his father's hometown just up the road. He rode to the next town with us and had lunch at the local bar with us. That is when I realize that I have lost one of the earrings that my friend, Marie, gave me on my retirement-Bummer!
