Today was an easy day, or what we call a "rolling rest day". From the hotel, we took roads to the paved Western Maryland Trail which paralleled the C&O Canal for 22 miles. Then, it was several miles back on the canal path to Little Orleans, where we had lunch at Bill's Place before shuttling to the hotel.
Our B&B was one of the first hotels built for auto travel, on the National Road, in 1916. Of course the main highways now bypass the road the hotel is on and the guests now consist primarily of cyclists and tour groups. We spent a nice evening at the hotel including a wonderful dinner and breakfast.
