Walked today from Creswell to Plymouth, NC. Weather was much better—40s but sunny with light winds. Covered just over 25 miles. Walked by some massive farms—grain, cotton, poultry, hogs. Land is flat, plenty of water and rich black dirt. Farming, logging and fishing on the Roanoke River and in the Albemarle Sound are the primary vocations for the area. We love seeing and learning about new places. Plymouth is a very historical town where a famous Civil War battle was fought on land and water in 1864. One of the last Confederate victories.
Our home for a couple of nights is the parking lot of Southern Bank in Plymouth. Folks here have been very generous and supportive. Some plan to walk a ways with me tomorrow. Company is always welcome.
This was also a busy day for donations via this website to the American Heart Association. Heart felt thanks to all. I’m trying to acknowledge all who contribute. If I miss you for some reason, it is not intentional and your gift is greatly appreciated.
In case you haven’t noticed, please click on the “Check Out My Route” button. Zoom in and you’ll see my ugly mug marking my spot at the end of each day. We are using exact GPS coordinates to mark my location and to make sure I don’t miss a step across our great nation. At the end of each day, I draw a heart with the day number ingooside as the stopping point for the day and the starting point for the next day. Today’s heart is number 6.

As the weather is improving, it’s time for all to get moving. Start or increase your personal exercise program tomorrow.
