The terrain was gently rolling and full of fertile farms like the one pictured below. We finished the day in Sebree, KY. The minister of the First Baptist Church, Bob and his wife Violet, have been hosting bicyclists in Sebree for many years. We stayed in the church and Violet made us a wonderful meal of chicken bearnaise.
We have passed several fancy horse farms with white fences and big barns. The horses pictured below however caught our attention. They are a matched team of Belgians which is a heavy horse for pulling loads. They were just as interested in us as you can see.
Saturday we left Sebree late in the morning and continued east on Hwy 56 for a short day of 27 miles ending in Utica. We stayed in a volunteer fire department's firehouse for the night. Lucky for us there wasn't a fire; however, we did hear all the 911 calls on the radio equipment all night. Today, Sunday, we made another early start since the temperature forecast was for mid 90's. The terrain got more challenging as we continued east. After several road changes, we pulled in Falls of Rough on Hwy 79 near Rough River State Park. A rest day is planned for tomorrow after six days of cycling. Milestone for today - surpassing 3000 miles!
