Along highway A1A, Ft. Pierce to Cape Canaveral, then Orlando
Lovely windy day, driving along this highway with gorgeous homes, occasional views of the ocean. Stopped at one beach-side picnic pavilion. Met a young man, Ethan, who took a train from Chicago to Palm Beach, and is now biking home with his tent, et al, strapped to his bike. Charming, idealistic like other young folks I know. He's hoping to do this entire trip on $500 - expects to be home some time in April. He's applied to the Peace Corps and also for another grant that would take him out of the country for a year for a study he would like to do. I'll post some pictures this evening!
