Gainsville, Florida to Ichetucknee, Florida - 35 miles. 85 degrees with strong winds from the South, mostly tail winds.
A very nice woman paid for my breakfast this morning. She couldn't believe I was headed for San Diego on my bike. I'm avoiding all the regular chain restaurants like Burger King or McDonalds, opting for local establishments. The food has been great, but I don't think I'm losing any weight!
I ended up camping at the Ichetucknee Campground, next to a large park with a couple of springs. This seems to be very popular around here, and there are a lot of places where people dive into these springs, where there are underwater caves full of cool, clear water. I took a nice hike, and there were canoe's for rent, but I did not rent one. A big storm was passing by way to the north, and it looked like it might rain, so I opted to stay in one of the cabins rather than camp in my tent. It was also nice to wash my clothes and take a hot shower.
I also got to sleep in a real bed. That was nice.
