I don't know how the Uneedas Superdome got its name, but it brought a smile to my face.
Near the end of the ride we had a long bridge with no shoulder, but there was no traffic, so it was not a safety issue. You can see that there really is NO shoulder on these bridges. There were a number of close encounters with dogs today. I don't get why people think it's OK to let their dogs run out into the road and terrorize passing cyclists.
We got to our hotel early, about 12:30. The only nearby place to eat lunch was at the gas station across the highway from where we are staying. My family will never believe that I ate lunch at a gas station, but there it is. I ordered the fried shrimp because the boiled shrimp and crawfish had heads and legs and all, and I did not want to deal with that. Carol cooked dinner tonight, and the spaghetti, salad, and pesto bread were superb. Eat to ride and ride to eat!
