We ended up going about 46.5 miles today!! We did most of it from 8 am-1:30 pm we were really screaming this morning.
In the afternoon when we stopped on E. Kirby Rd at local market to stock up. I think it was a ShurFine. If you folks are out there, correct us with a comment and we'll fix it. Emily was really tired and stayed laying on the grass outside the store while we went in. Apparently she just conked right out. They made us the most amazing sandwichs -- huge and yummy. The manager told us how to get to a little island just down the road where we could eat, rest and hang out during the heat of the day
The park on the island is going to be beautiful when the town is done working on it. We sort of took over the pavillion. We streched out our mattress pads to sit on to eat and then took naps. Carmen took out her sleeping bag for the sun to dry up the moisture. A cop drove by and looked at us weird and drove off, Alexis thinks some one thought we were squatters and called the cops.
We got chased by two more dogs, too! The only ones that seem to chase us are black ones.
Alexis sang to us again, this time it was, "House of the Rising Sun".
