The week is progressing all too fast.  Today we biked through some flower fields albiet they were mostly bloomed out but I was able to catch a few blooms.  We also traveled to the seashore along the way and lunched on the beach.   There were an amazing number of towns to traverse and lots of traffic.  Not the type of biking I enjoy as it makes for white knuckle time at some of the intersections.  Thankfully the automobile drivers are very respectful of cyclists but then again, they expect everyone to know and follow the rules.  With a plethora of signs it is somewhat confusing at times.  I think the bigger hazzard is the other cyclists (not associated with our group)  They go like there's no tomorrow and weave in and out...they being so accustomed to dodging traffic and squeezing in between riders.  All in all though, it was a great day.  I found this internet connection in a local hotel after we returned to the boat.  It ain't too speedy so I will upload this short report without further elaboration and then try to upload todays photos.
