Patterson, LA to Donaldsonville, LA (53 miles)

Today we wound through the bayous of southern Louisiana. We saw lots of wildlife including an alligator!! He was about 4 feet long and jumped in the water as soon as he heard our shrieks of excitement. We saw our first river steam boat, the Mississippi Queen. She was in the process of being renovated and fascinated us with her sheer size! Overall we enjoyed a short but beautiful day!

To top things off, we bring this blog post to you under the sponsorship of the Feinberg-Eddy family who has put us up in a lovely hotel for the night! It is such a treat to sleep on real sheets with real pillows and use real towels. Ahhhhh the simple pleasures in life.

After our mosquito free sleep we will be rested and ready to ride into New Orleans tomorrow. Can't wait! This marks about the halfway point for Joe and I. We have ridden about 3000 miles and have approximately 2500 left
to get up to Boston!
