I am tired. I did 189 miles today. I have no pictures. I did have a chocolate shake for lunch. Check back tomorrow night and I will have more.

Took Maggie for a walk this morning. We are now sitting on the porch of the Coombs Inn, a Bed and Breakfast where we spent the night. I will get some pictures here in Apalachicola before I leave and post them sometime later today, maybe this morning, or maybe this evening.

My pictures of the SR-71 Blackbird on 4/22 prompted an email from my sister, Carolyn, reminding me that our cousin Major Ronnie C. Rice was qualified as an SR-71 Reconnaissance Operator. He flew many classified sorties with Colonel Tom Pugh as his pilot. One of those missions was to create a double sonic boom over the "Hanoi Hilton" as a signal to key prisoners in the PoW camp. Thanks for the input, Carolyn.
