This morning changed things. While filling water bottles at the local gas station after breakfast a group of locals asked us where we were headed. After a brief description of our route one of them explained that if we stayed on the road going through town the trip would be 40 miles shorter. It did not take much for us to change our route. We did the same miles as planned but now are closer to Florida. Divergence from the cycle America route for the rest of the trip is now being considered.
Hot and humid, with lots of rollers and green roadsides pretty much describes the day.
Our motel is just outside of Monroeville and all but the Huddle house is closed on Sunday. Also, it is a dry county.
