Palatka Lake Butler State Trail

Maybe it was the holiday or perhaps the easterly wind, but the trail seemed practically deserted this morning. We saw and heard many more birds than cyclists, as a black snake, a black cat, and a small parade of black grasshoppers shared the trail with us.
This was an excellent opportunity for John and Jeanne to test ride recumbent trikes for the first time and Larry and Sheila accommodated. Once we turned around at Roberts Lane the day seemed warmer and the pedaling easier, yet wildlife continued to dominate the scene.
A total of 29 miles brought us back to our motorcars and cemented our intention to head straight to Tom's Barbecue for refueling where the entire group was not disappointed.
