The hotel is a small family operation and the proprietors are extremely friendly. Before I even changed from my bike clothes, I had a light "lunch" consisting of a cross between a cream puff and strawberry shortcake, with a cup of coffee, served in the garden. It was homemade and absolutely delicious.
After settling in, I strolled around the town square and took a few pictures. We had our evening briefing to discuss tomorrow's options, since we will be in this hotel for two nights. We have the option of (1) a forty mile loop ride with some climbing, (2) a shorter loop ride without the hills, (3) either of the above with a two hour boat ride through five interconnected lakes, (4) a very short bike ride to the boat trip, or (5) take the day off. I am leaning toward the long bike ride, but the weather and the wind will be the determining factors.
