Arriving at family is always a special treat, unlike the many warm showers and kind strangers we could feel genuinely relaxed with a more open stay. We arrived at Terry & Millie’s house after dark to a full house and full plates of dumplings. Amanda caught up with the Andros clan after too many years. We parked the bikes in Terry & Millie’s garage and piled into Linda’s van for a ride to her condo a few blocks away.
The following morning we met the rest of the Andros Gang, Jimmy & Maureen. Jimmy offered to drive us around the area showing us the the manatee and space coast. Two cruise liners we docked giving us a chance to see up close how massive they are.
Back at the house we had pastitsio for dinner then went to the club house for an ice cream social. Linda was amused by all the people who showed up for ice cream, but are normally hidden in their houses.
It was a treat to relax without any agenda or destination goal. Terry & Millie invited us to dinner with them where we all laughed and talked about the trip so far and what the future may bring.
Today marked the end of our mini-break and the day we would start heading west. We said goodbyes and the loaded bikes were once again on their way.
