Day 14 On The Road With POPs Ride

Today was a rest day for me. It was a beautiful Sunday, Mothers Day. I am grateful for my mom and to Leisa for the great mothers that they are. I love them both so much and am anxious to see them both in San Diego.
I enjoyed seeing the country side today. Alot of beautiful farms, jersey cows, and old barns. At one place when Mona and I stopped a lady approached us and we were talking. She was from Vancouver BC nd was visiting her mom. She said that she her step father had built a tree house on their property and invited us to drive back and see it. We drove down a dirt road o their place and it was beautiful. Such a nice place with trees blooming. They took me to the back yard where the tree house was. It was actually a house on supports built against a tree with stairs leading to it. It was big enough for a full size bed and finished with nice wood. It had windows with a great view. A pretty cool place.
We also went through a town called Ferndale. It was a nice little town with victorian style homes, churches with great steeples, a very cool cemetery, and an old style main street.
It was a great day, I love the opportunity to be here and am very grateful for the Stutzman family for allowing me to do so ad for how well they take care of me. I am very fortunate to have them for my friends. I am impressed with Pop's and his endurance and strength. He is a great example of perseverence.
Tonight we are staying at a baptist church in Rio Dell CA., and tomorrow we get to ride through "another forest", the avenue of the giants. Tomorrow I will be riding for my daughter Jacie. She is a real sweetheart who I think is an amazing girl. I love you Jacie and very proud to ride for her!
