Leaving Williamsburg at around 8:00 AM, we bicycled through the Virginia countryside. Early American History and Civil War History monuments are every where. These monuments included the site of the "Seven Days Wars", in which Lee almost defeated McClellan...almost, but not quite. Weather was overcast with sprinkles of rain, but not enough to dampen spirits. Our trail today was well marked, and is actually part if the Virginia Bi-Centennial Bicycle Trail. We stopped for lunch at a very small country store. And I stopped at each and every one of the history
sites and tried to take it all in. Like I said "EFI"! Every Fantastic Inch! Our overnight accommodations are in the Willis Church, which, in 1862, was used as a hospital by the Confederate troops after the "Seven days Wars". Paul and Nicole, our leaders for this ride are awesome! They are going out of their way to make our trip a huge success. In a later post, I'll introduce the leaders and the participants. Ok, this church does not have showers in their facility, so...when we arrived, the leaders had built us a shower with a suspended "boda bag" shower! Actually it's called a "Sea to Summit Pocket Shower", and we're all raving about it. See you tomorrow...
