Day 65: 69 miles to Bloomington, INDIANA!
Today we crossed into another state! We stopped for lunch at Vincennes where we decided to part ways for a few days. Ceci and I headed north to Bloomington, while Karin headed south to Louisville. Don't worry friends, it's only for a few days and we will reunite on Saturday in North Vernon.
Sunset over the corn fields
We really wanted to make it all the way to Bloomington, where Andy D and Victoria were waiting, so we decided to keep biking even after it got dark. The red full moon lit the night for us and a blanket of fog strangely only covered the crops on the left of us.
Day 66-69: 0 miles, resting in Bloomington
Andy D & Victoria just moved into a sweet house with a gorgeous garden that has roses, vegetables, surprise lillies, and sunflowers taller than me!
Victoria let us raid her closet. It feels so nice to wear a dress!
Karen, Andy's mom, took us all out for lunch (Thanks!)
(She's a therapist who is working on a book about female sex offenders)
The pool is only a few blocks away.
The next day we had a picnic at the winery.
We took a stroll through the University and went to see an exhibit at the Special Collections Library where Victoria is getting her library science degree.
Victoria was painting these seagreen stripes in perfect lines without even putting tape on the walls.

Andy & Victoria have been cooking us delicious meals! Pasta sauce made with tomatoes from their garden, shepherd's pie, and homemade cobbler to name some highlights. We also got to eat Indian AND Tibetan food!
We hit the Bloomington night scene a few times to get our dance on.
I miss dancing!! my legs almost forgot how... (almost)
As of midnight, it was Ceci's birthday!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CECI!!!!

For her B-day, Victoria surprised Ceci with a beautiful AND delicious banana chocolate cake.
