Melrose!

Special Blog Edition! Melrose.

A short but very special edition blog tonight. Our 50 mile route today took us thru Melrose, Fl. What a nice treat! It’s a very pretty not-really-little town with a lot of history and obvious pride. It was the “noon stop” for the girls in STella to meet up with us bike riders. We took a little stroll down the main street and snapped some pix as we headed for the lunch stop.

We always try to find a “local owned” diner or restaurant in these smaller towns (big towns, too, if we can find them). It’s wonderfully easy to visit with local folks, especially here when we told them I had been raised in Melrose, Iowa!

The craziest thing was, as we were riding out of town, I received a phone call from one of the Kenworthy boys from Melrose, Iowa who had somehow seen the blog and was checking in. I mean, what are the odds! He had no idea where I was at the time. The cool thing was, he was also a former Marine who’s brother, another former Marine, had walked the Camino de Santiago the same summer I did mine. Crazy, huh?

No Shamrocks here, but lots of nice friendly folks. Just thought all you Melrose home folk would like to know.

Erin go Braugh!
