Got a bit of a late start today. Looked around at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park. The park is on land that the Lincoln family once owned. The park includes The First Lincoln Memorial that houses a cabin that was thought to be the cabin where Lincoln was born. Modern technology has proven that the cabin dates from about 40 years after his birth but represents a cabin of the type where he was born.
Our accommodations tonight are at the White Mills Volunteer Fire Department. We are sleeping inside in the air conditioning! Dan from the fire department lives across the street and showed us around. We also were able to do laundry at Dan’s house and hung out on his front porch and met his dogs. Dressed in bike clothes we thought he might be another TransAm rider. Dan was going out for an afternoon bike ride.
