At about mile 81 we loaded our bikes on the ferry and crossed the Mississippi River. The ferry is going to shut down in a couple of months when the new bridge opens, so the man at the store had his facts a little skewed.
After we got off the ferry in St. Francisville we stopped at the visitors' center and bought post cards and other things, and then proceeded to the Butler Greenwood B & B. But first we had to get by some serious construction on a busy road. Fortunately we could ride most of the way on the
paved side of the road that was closed to traffic. At one point it was unpaved, and that was not fun, but we all arrived safely.
