Thursday July 14 – Itza – Evangola to Buffalo
Today we left Evangola Camping ground and headed towards Buffalo, New York. We ended up doing 51 miles today instead of 30miles because we got lost somewhere in between.
However, when we arrived to Buffalo and saw the signs we all let out some crazy noise. We let out a victory scream. We then road down till we got to Michigan St where we took a right turn and met Kevin Cottrell and 2 really nice reporters. We were invited inside the church and got to listen to the importance of Buffalo in the Underground Railroad movement.
We also visited a park were we could see Canada for the 1st time. Canada was just within reach. Even though we weren’t going to cross over it was just incredible being able to see it from a distance and knowing we are so close. the thing is that I didn’t really realize that we made it to buffalo till we got to David and Molly’s house where we spent the night. The great thing about spending the night at David and Molly’s home is that we started our journey with a Quaker family (Sara and Darryl from Blountsville, Alabama) and we ended our journey with a Quaker family. This was a great day!
