Ride time 6 hrs 21 minutes
|These socks that our friends gave John May of 2010 are still being worn. |
The heel is getting a little thin but they will definitely last the rest of this trip!
The rest of our ride was very pleasant with comfortable temperatures and scenic landscapes. One historical marker that we stopped at today was called the “Sunken Trace” and is located at milepost 41.5. The trace appears sunken in this spot due to thousands of travelers walking on the easily eroded loess soil. Once again, you can only imagine who traveled over this route over the centuries gone by.
We arrived in Port Gibson at Isabella Bed & Breakfast around 3:00PM. Bobbie (The Innkeeper) greeted us at the door when we arrived at Isabella’s and made us feel right at home. John was able to clean our bike up while I showered. Afterwards we sat out on the veranda just off our bedroom. It is very pleasant temperature and a beautiful area. http://www.natcheztracetravel.com/portgibson-bedandbreakfasts/isabella.html At 5:00PM we went down stairs and had dinner. We had each ordered a chef salad and then we had a bowl of smoked chicken gumbo. It was really delicious!
Another great day - we have 40.5 miles to bicycle to Natchez tomorrow where we will spend Thursday afternoon and all day Friday before we continue our journey!
