Bike Ride #2

We drove to Pahokee today to ride part of LOST – Lake Okeechobee State Trail.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The lake is the second-largest freshwater lake in the USA, average depth is 9 feet. After a hurricane in 1928 when 2500 people were killed, a 30-foot dike was built around the entire lake. Parts of the trail are paved, parts are rough trail, and parts are impassable requiring cyclists to ride on roads. Ultimately, there is supposed to be a 110-mile paved trail. After just 6 miles, we came to an impassable section and turned around.

Back in Ft Pierce, we stopped at Pelican Seafood Market – what a beautiful selection.
