The thunder and lightning was quite powerful and struck all around me as I headed north between 90 degree cattle farms and 70 degree downpours. I managed to skirt around a couple storms on sandy farm roads and enjoyed a bit of off-pavement riding.
I picked up another M8-35 bolt for my exhaust after discovering the replacement from Key West had already fallen out!
The parking lot of the ACE hardware had a fruit stand with a beautiful woman pushing her melons. Wait...that came out wrong ;). I bought a $3 seedless watermelon for my generous hosts in The Villages, FL
