As soon as we walked out of the door in the morning, it hit us. Today was our first day with pretty much any humidity...felt like home. We toughed out another day into the wind, reaching our home-stay 97 miles later in Lincoln, NE.
At least there were flowers today scattered amongst the fields...
I do always love to see the rows in the fields though, they're so perfect.
We had great hosts and after a few days without a family to meet and greet us after our ride, we really, really appreciated their open arms and hospitality. They also treated us with a trip to the country club pool, which was like heaven after the hot, humid ride. We were paraded around like trophies, which gave us the opportunity to meet a number of great people and talk about the ride. After our session at the pool, we had another fabulous meal with one of my favorites...sweet corn on the cob. YUM.
