Day 55: going rogue

I woke up nice and early this morning. I had slept on the fluffy carpet in one of the classrooms and did not want the kids to be traumatized by coming to Sunday school and seeing a strange man sleeping on the classroom floor. Because of my early start, I was riding by another Methodist Church at just the right moment. They had a sign out stating that the third Sunday of every month was a men's breakfast. As I was parking my bike, a guy came out and I asked him about it. He invites me in and I was treated to the most epic southern. breakfast ever. They even has shrimp and grits! So good.

A little after breakfast, two guys in their early twenties biked up to me and we rode together for the next twenty or so miles. I stopped to check out the Jamestown Settlement as they continued onto the ferry across the James River.

Now I am at Chippokes State park. I bought some firewood, hot dogs and buns so I can have a proper camp out tonight to celebrate my trip coming to a close. I am a little sad to be done, but say more excited to see loved ones.

Here is me in front of the door to unlimited Shrimp and Grits:
