There’s really not a lot to say about today. We knew it was going to be chilly and windy and wet today, and indeed it was. Yesterday was a pretty tough ride in the heat and I was pretty whipped by the time we arrived in Port Austin. I actually slept 10 hours last night, and I could easily have slept another hour or two but instead we got up and went down the street for breakfast. Once breakfast was over we went back to our motel room and got dressed for the weather, put our panniers on our bikes and hit the road. We had two possible destinations in mind. The first was a county park campground in Sebewaing and the second was Bay City, and which destination we ended up at was pretty much completely contingent on the winds today. If the winds had continued out of the west as they have been for the last couple of days, we would have only made it to Sebewaing, but with the change in weather the wind had backed around to the north so while we had some interesting riding on the westbound bits with an absolutely roaring wind from our right, it did help us a bit on the southwestern and southbound bits. Being wet and gray and chilly we didn’t dawdle or stop much, and we didn’t take any photos. We just rode, ate, drank, and rode some more. We did at one point se a bird, which Jodi thinks is a pelican, take off from a wetland just feet from our bikes as we rode by.
