We had a new rider with us for the next couple of days, Bill Erwin from Orlando. Bill knows Roger, May, Ace, and Jo from previous bike trips. It was a pleasure to meet him. He drove down to Gainsville the night before and will be with us for two days.
Gainsville is easier to exit than enter. We had a brief ride along busy 8th Avenue, before we found quieter roads. The scenery was lovely and the day nice though a bit warm.

Once again we were on the road to our next destination. More nice roads with an abundance of wildflowers. The nights stay was at Ichetucknee Family Camp and Cabin, a cute little family run campgound with charming cabins. Once we were checked in, a few of us drove down the road a short ways to the Ichetucknee State Park to visit the spring. There was a short walk along an elevated board walk, and trail to the springs. It was a pretty setting and you could see the current of water coming up from the spring.
