The Restaurants are Closed

With the wind at my back the miles flew by. I arrived in Sopchoppy (ah to have cycle to Panacea) with thoughts of finding a restaurant close by my campsite at Ochlockonee River State Park. I found the Backwoods Bistro a place with a great menu. Life looked promising.

Standing out front I heard noise within but all "looked" quiet. I called on the phone. A man, the chef, answered and when he saw me, he opened the door. Closed on Mondays. I requested aide in finding another establishment. We looked at maps, made calls, discussed possibilities and almost gave up. Then he said, "Look, I'll give you a grouiper fillet", to which he added blackening spice and a lemon. This is the kindness that accompanies cycling.

I added a small bag of briquets, beer, potatoes, salad (and yes said the glutton) a small steak and ten pounds of ice. A much heavier bike but a feast requires commitment.

  1. What do you think of grits? They're best with lots of butter and/or maple syrup. What, no biscuits and gravy? Or, is that only for breakfast? Those will certainly slow you down. Keep on cycling!!
