Done with Texas, Louisiana here we come!

This morning (Day 35) tears were shed by the team as they had their Boo Hoo breakfast – their last one in Texas. NOT! We did have a beautiful sunrise this morning,

She was jumping for joy as she made it to the other side of the Sabine River and saw the Louisiana State sign – Bienvenue a Louisiane!

Yea! Louisiana
Yea! Louisiana

After a short lunch stop on the line – (at the Sabine River), the team crossed over into Louisiana and pedaled a few more miles to De Ridder.

With thunderstorms and rain predicted for tomorrow, the team has elected to stay in the Best Western and take a “break” day tomorrow. Guess we’ll be walkin around De Ridder, LA for awhile. Great dinner at Thai Basil, a short walk across the Walmart parking lot and we were there.

Side note – the motorists have been extra kind and cautious with our riders!
