Today we rode through cotton fields with scattered corn and maze fields, after riding through rice fields yesterday. Our ride yesterday was 90 miles long in a heat index of 111 degrees. It was by accident. The town we had intended to stay in had all the motel rooms booked up due to a funeral. Guess all the kin came home. This actually turned out to be a happy situation. We stayed in a wonderful B&B in Washington, LA. The propriator was a very interesting artist who lived in Paris and on a LA plantation. So we had a late start after touring her art gallery and parts of her home built in 1903. We met many fun people along the way before landing at the Sportsman Motel. It certainly is not up-scale but the hospitality could not be any better.
