Today the sun was out again, lovely, WINDY, ride.

Explored Cape Charles as we left.

A boom railroad town in the 1880s, it has been restored with lovely homes and shops. The railroad is still around though is not a focus, but the trains still come and go.

Walking down the Main Street I spotted lots of galleries, shops, and a pub. I'd love to come back and stay a few days.

I'd stay at the Hotel Cape Charles again!

Hmmm...I thought this would make an excellent art studio/ gallery. 

Time to get going with our day's ride.

Warm and windy we stopped by the Exmore Diner for fried trout, turnip greens, with a strawberry shake for dessert. A perk of biking is you need lots of calories to keep moving!

 Mary Joe served up a great lunch and arranged for us to get free range chicken eggs to take with.    The rest of the day was sunny with beautiful shady back roads. This is an area riddled with poverty and you see many abandoned house along the way.

After riding 57 miles we ended the day at Tall Pines Harbor.
