An old fashioned style single storey motel where you park in front of your room. Found it on line at the last minute, about half the price of the Comfort Inn. Not the same standard of fittings but still has a bed, 2 chairs at the table, another at the desk and a fridge and microwave. Has a guest laundry - needed it tonight.

We stopped for lunch on the side of the trail. We felt like we were so far from anywhere. While eating, some people walked up with a new car battery, a rake ...
We woke up to a super rainy day. We are in the Blennerhassett Hotel. The hotel is on the National Register of Historic Hotels. Food and accommodations are much beyond bike trip standards. It is very old and very beautiful. However, we are never good with rainout days. There are no stores near here. Scott needs peeling off the ceiling again. He goes to wander the downtown in the rain. I stay. ...
