Dauphin Island, Alabama

Got up early for 70 miles day. Mickey’s leg is hurting a lot, so we went slow, 12-13 mph, with a good tail wind and smooth surface. Got steadily colder all day. The forecast has been wrong almost every day. A week ago, Tuesday was supposed to be perfect. Now they predict 60% chance of rain.

By the time we got to the ferry it was very windy and cold. By the time we waited for the ferry and rode it, it was 3:30 with 29 miles to go. We knew with Mickey’s bum knee we couldn’t do it. So we stayed on the island. Sat down to relax a few minutes and it started to rain. Put the tents up and threw stuff inside. Went to cover.

Dinner, shower, to bed.
