Day 65 This journeys end

"...Long journeys are strange things: if we were always to continue in the same mind we are in at the end of a journey, we should never stir from the place we were then in . . ."
Sri Sathya Sai Baba

I'm really ready to be home but I know there will be another adventure. This was a fun ride and I'm ready to plan the next one.

We were awake before the alarm went off at 4:45. Breakfast at 5 and rolling at 5:40. We averaged 17 mph for the 28 miles to Green Cove Springs where we were meeting Jesse to ride the last 30 miles to St. Augustine.

A quick ride took us to St Augustine where we headed straight for the beach. We get there and who do we find sitting in the lifeguard tower but Clark. Sweet duty.

It is great to finally be here.

Dear Pete and Hugh,

Congratulations guys! What a great trip-- and Pete-- thanks for keeping us all up to date.

That's a great shot of you two with your bikes in the Atlantic Ocean. Wow!

Get some loving from Clark and Jesse and come on home.

I should say that home is in the 90's right now. The delicate NW flowers that we are -- we're wilting! And that without your humidity in Florida.

Love all around,

T Swimmy

Congratulations and well done! We looked at your last day entry from Tatyana's "office" while basking at Madison Beach.
Looking forward to having you home to hear more tidbits as the days pass.

We did it!!!! I mean Pete and Hugh did but you took us with you and it was great to go there with you and see you land at the Atlantic.

What a great quote and everyone at my "office" was very moved and impressed that a couple of bikers would go so deep. I want to hear more about the change when you get back. Have fun in paradise. I'm so proud to know you both and witness this voyage through fire and ice, as such. You Da Man!
