Day 35: Watertown to Redfield

Today was a nice change of pace. Literally. We only had 72.3 miles and took the day very leisurely after the two previous long days.

We dedicated our ride to Steve, Simon’s family friend that has been diagnosed recently.

At about 33 miles in we all stopped at Corner Diner for a second breakfast. It was clearly the type of place that had regulars, and they were all very interested in what we were doing. Two nice men paid for all of our meals, another generous gesture we have been the beneficiaries of. We really like telling people about what we are trying to accomplish, and it is so nice when people are enthusiastic to hear.

Our groups all stopped for many pictures on hay bails and to admire the scenery. Today is the first day I really noticed just how far you could see; green grass and corn for miles.

We are staying at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Redfield. They left a delicious dinner for us.

So far we are enjoying our time in South Dakota!
