well, we made it to Holland… we saw some really cool stuff along the way, went thru South Haven, lots of cool houses there… also saw some more lakeshore today… i only got to ride 20mi but it was a real good 20 mi…..LOL got a flat today on the rear of my bike, as soon as i had it fixed, we started riding again, and got all of 500ft before Danita found her back tire was flat as a pancake! LOL so we stopped AGAIN to change her tire… about a third of my ride was in the rain today, but it wasnt too bad… the good conversations with everyone took my mind off the weather. i have to give a big shout out to Hope CRC, for thier AWESOME support stop with both coffee and really good cookies from a local bakery, as well as the Historic Graafschap church, the first church in the CRC denomination…they have a really cool museum in the basement of the church, that takes you thru the Dutch immigration, and the birth of the CRC. its also a very beautiful building, so i had to take a few pictures…LOL
tonight we are staying at the Hope college dorms…everyone is VERY thankful for real beds!!!!!!!
