It has become a tradition to begin the morning with devotions, prayer and a cheer!
We left Bellaire climbing a long grade but the plus side of that is the fun downhill that followed.
Around Torch Lake was peaceful and calm, through Alden along the lake in the sunshine.
We dropped down into Traverse City and grabbed the bike path all the way up into Suttons Bay. Lunch was in a peaceful setting on the bay after riding about 55 miles.
|This is why you pray!|
The last 25 miles were trying and a bit stressful with narrow lanes, crumbing roads and lots of traffic. We ended on a trail into beautiful Glen Arbor.
We headed across the street to Boone Docks for dinner and met a great couple celebrating a birthday. Happy birthday again and thank you for supporting life! Enjoy your weekend.
After dinner we headed to a beach bards bonfire just a few miles down the road, led by Norm (cousin of Don Wickstra). So much fun. Singing songs, reciting poetry, guitars, trumpets, and other musical instruments. It was a peaceful way to end a long day. Thank you Norm and friends!
We also want to thank Mike for doing such a great job getting BLAKE to our destination each night and for the special trips after dinner!
We are celebrating the new total of over $70,000 raised by the entire team (team Alma and team LPC). We have become one united team and thank each of you for joining in! It's not too late to add to that amount and become part of the team.
Please continue your prayers as we enter into day 7. It is another 100 mile day, on a Friday through some busy weekender towns.
This verse sums up the day!
