We had a nice celebratory dinner last night in Amelia Island. The waitress asked what the occasion was and we told her about the bike ride. When the bill arrived, 10% had been deducted as a celebration discount! We thanked her and told her that we would donate that amount to I Care I Cure in her name and we did! There are kind and generous people everywhere!
