Day 11 of the W3R-US Bike and Kayak Tour!

09/07/2021

Bike and Kayak Tour – Day 11: Sal and I returned to Rochambeau Plaza in Havre de Grace for the start of today’s 38-mile cycling segment.

Washington and Lafayette are honored with monuments in Baltimore’s Mount Vernon Cultural District. Participants in the noon program there included Steven Lampredi, re-enacting merchant Robert Long, and Stephen Faulkner, re-enacting James Armistead Lafayette, an African American slave who was employed as a spy by Lafayette, and Robert Reyes, re-enacting a soldier in the Fixed Regiment of Spanish Louisiana, formed in New Orleans to support the United States against the British.

Participants gathered for a group shot at the end of the activities and the re-enactors took a group photo with Sal.

After we drove to Annapolis, Sal’s cousin Larry Nordhauser loaned him his kayak and took him to the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse for kayaking in Chesapeake Bay.

Final stop was kayaking near Annapolis’ city dock. We return to Baltimore tomorrow to cycle to Annapolis for a 1 p.m. ceremony at the State House.
