Day 7 - Houston, MS to Belmont, MS

Today was the first in a string of long days.  There were plenty of historical sites to view, no C-Stores along the way.  Once again it was Jeanna to the rescue with a cooler full of cold drinks every 10 miles or so.

We stopped for lunch in Tupelo but had a difficult time finding a restaurant that allowed indoor seating.  All of the fast food joints were drive-thru only.  We finally went to strip center where John bought a salad at Kroger's and we found a Japanese restaurant that had indoor dining.  The A/C felt great!

For the rest of this post, I'll let photos do the talking.

Farmland along the trace. After miles and miles of forest, this was a pleasant change of scenery.

John leading the way. On the downhills the roles are reversed.

The dining room. Unfortunately, the furnishings were much nicer than the breakfast. The only offerings were frozen sausage biscuits
