Originally we had planned on biking 60 miles to Fremont but we decided to continue biking to Clyde - there is a beautiful paved bike trail (North Coast Inland Trail) that goes from Fremont to Clyde. I was very impressed with some of the huge beautiful and nicely landscaped old homes in Fremont along the bike route. Wow, I can't even begin to imagine what they pay to heat one of those homes in the winter.
We checked into the Red Roof Inn around 1:45 and the gal gave us a room with double beds for $59.00 - she told us we would be on the 2nd floor and that we could store our bike in a meeting room. We went up to room 218 to get changed to go swimming and when we opened the door we noticed that the room hadn't been cleaned and that someone else was using that room - they had a laptop and luggage in the room yet. We immediately went downstairs and told the gal and she ended up giving us a $80.00 room for the price of the double bed room with a jaccuzzi in it. However, she said that they would not turn the water for the jaccuzzi on. LOL Oh well, what ever it takes - at least we got a king size bed. We did enjoy a swim in their pool area before getting dressed to go to dinner.
There is a little Farm Market across the road and we will go over there this evening to get what ever we want for supper.

|We've seen several convenient stores that have drive up service. Apparently you drive your car in the garage and honk and the attendant will bring you your groceries, beer, or what ever.|
|This was an interesting fence along the highway as we were leaving Gibsonburg.|
|This was a very narrow country road (it felt like we were on our own bike trail) that went through the middle with fields on both side.|
|If you look close you can see a doe and on the right is a baby fawn running across the field after we startled them.|
|This was just one of the many big beautiful homes that we saw as we were biking on the bike route through Fremont. I loved the US flag hanging on their front porch. The porch had a swing on it and looked so inviting.|
