While waiting for the condensation in the tent to dry, we watch some birds play around on our site, and have our breakfast. We are still amazed to have this place all to ourselves. The sun rays are much stronger today and soon we are ready to pack up again to hit the road.

As we first wake up, we notice there is no condensation in the tent for a change and the temperature outside does not feel too bad.  After a hot cup of coffee and breakfast, we start packing up…that’s when we notice that we feel a little chillier.

Shortly after we made it into Tennessee, the snow magically disappears. The cold, however, stayed… so did the brisk cold wind that just went right to our bones. Luckily the scenery is beautiful and we have quite a few more hills to climb, which keeps us warm and happy.

Slowly we come to the realization that the temperature is dropping and the wind is picking up as the day grows later. Before bedtime comes around we are wearing extra clothes and buffs to keep us warm.

Conversation while getting supplies from the grocery store

“Where are ya’ll coming from?”

"Down from Florida, just North of Clearwater."

“On a bike!?! When did you guys start?”

"Last Saturday."

labyrinth In the morning we walked around the property and checked out a little Labyrinth Ken and Darlene built out of wood and with lots of love. After our short stroll we were invited for coffee and breakfast in their lovely home. We are given lots of good advise on which route to take north and what's to see along the way, before saying goodbye.
