This morning we arrived in St Mary's, checked into our hotel, and met some of the other riders for lunch at the Riverside Restraunt.
Then we went for a short ride around the area.
We got some fudge at the ice cream shop in town before going back to the hotel to get ready for dinner.
We had a group meeting and "happy hour" before leaving for dinner at the Seagle's Restaurant.
The town is beautiful, people are really nice, and drivers are courteous to cyclists. There are no hills here! Tomorrow we have a 33 mile group ride, it should be a piece of cake. Don't leave till 10, so lots of time to rest after dinner. Since we are not riding the tandem and I am on my single bike, there will be fewer pictures. Gotta keep both hands on the handle bars.
I met another quilter at dinner, she is also riding. She actually brought her machine and is sewing in the evenings. Hopefully we can get together tomorrow and I can see what she is working on. What could be better.
Life is good.

DH and I have become accustomed to challenges during our vacations. We have endured illness, stolen vehicles, and lost reservations. Today as we left home the vehicle in front of us had a tire blow out, crossed the median and flipped. The driver was thrown out violently and sustained massive injuries. DH and a nurse on the scene tried to help while I called 911. Then another man saw car seats in the back so we pulled them out to make sure there was not a child inside. This is the second vehicle that has flipped and rolled right in front of me. The others were more fortunate than this young man. Please remember to fasten your seat belts. I don't know if it would have saved him, but it certainly increases your chances. Tonight a mother has lost a son, child(ren) have lost a father. It was a very sad drive.
Life is sad sometimes.
