Rome, NY to Sprakers, NY (66 miles)

Yesterday morning we woke up to a huge feast for breakfast that rivaled the amazing homemade spaghetti and meatball the night before. Larry even ran out and bought us a dozen doughnuts from this great little Rome bakery that has been there forever. It was so thoughtful of him since he read our blog and knew that Joe loves donuts!

Well rested and overfed, we left Larry and Patty's following the bicycle directions they have printed out to get their guests back on the bike route. We rode along route 5 which follows the Erie canal and winds through more small towns and farmland. Near the en of the day we met up with our next warmshower hosts Roland and Janet at the local rhubarb festival. We treated ourselves to a piece of the pie that won 3rd was so good!! We then went a bit further down the road to a church built in 1770 where the organ builders daughter was playing the organ in a special concert. It was such an amazing experience.

We then rode the last 15 miles back to Janet and Roland's house accompanied by Janet. Their home was really a little slice of heaven, tucked away in the woods with a natural stone waterfall running behind the house.
