Day 10 – Heading Home
We woke at 7am to the wonderful smell of breakfast being cooked by the elks. Even though the last nine days we had been on our bikes all the riders seemed sad not to be riding today. By 7:30am our bus driver Jim from Dolphin Transportation was waiting for us at the Elks. All equipment and bikes were loaded up for the trip home. We then thanked the Elks lodge for all their hospitality. And in return they thanked us for all we had done for the families, the firefighters and the city of Charleston.
No good-byes were said, just “see you soon” as our new brothers from Houston, TX headed home. Some riders were greeted by their families when they arrived in Charleston and either headed home last night or early this morning. The rest then boarded the bus and Candy and myself followed behind as we headed back to Naples.
Thank you to everyone for making our first annual ride a huge success!
