April 17: Rest Day in St. Francisville

Spent the day with Don:

* No alarm wake up, leisurely light breakfast

* Headed to Baton Rouge to visit State Capitol Building (more active than most we have visited as legislature is in session, though no morning meetings

* Drove through L.S.U. Campus and found a Community Coffee house for mid-morning stop

* Don wanted to see the Mississippi River bridge we rode over, so drove to New Roads ( much faster in car than on bicycle)

* Lunch in New Roads at Ma Mama’s Kitchen

* Back to St. Francisville for chiropractic adjustment (thanks Dr. Travis and Sarah), a drive through historic district, some bike repairs, and a tour of the Butler-Greenwood Plantation, where some of our riders are staying

  1. The key word here is “appropriate”

  2. ‘appropriate’ leaves a lot to the imagination. Ummmm…bet by the time you get home, you will have enough of bike riding for a few weeks…
