We had some really quiet, almost deserted roads today - but they were all paved!  It was one more day through Maryland (and a little piece of Delaware) farmland.  The views were peaceful and bucolic.  I had some pictures of the roads, but for some reason they didn't come out.

Beautiful farm

Our place to visit today was the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.  Just before we entered the refuge, we stopped at Blackwater Paddle and Pedal Adventures to see if they had a restroom.  (Almost deserted roads have no convenience stores.)  A group was just getting off their bus.  They were getting ready to go kayaking and then for a bike ride.

These folks were getting ready to paddle. A bike ride was to follow after the kayaking.

After we did the loop through the refuge, we stopped at the Visitor's Center.  June was warm and friendly and happy to have us park our bike RIGHT NEXT TO THE DOOR!  No grumpy man here.

Safely parked

Tomorrow is more waterfront resort and less agriculture.  We're ready to see something new.

Today's ride: 54 miles (87 km)
Total: 1,423 miles (2,290 km)

Michael RuddockEnjoyed all these nice agricultural photos, which look exactly like our area here in Ontario, green and fertile, but it's very windy due to the lack of tree cover.
