We got unpacked into the KOA cabin and went exploring…

that is not a lake. That is the Atlantic Ocean.

K&E

Yes, I went in! Got right back out too, there is a crab right in front of my foot!

apples mixed in the drifted grasses and seaweed…

img_4270

seaweed is different over here….

As are the tides…9′ difference. That is low tide the next morning above, high tide in the other photos.

Time for dinner! We had our first lobster!

I had a lobster roll, which sounds more impressive than it is. It’s basically a whole lobster (tail and claws) cut up, mixed with mayo, and put on a toasted hot dog bun. $18. Everything is expensive here, tourist land. The whole damn East Coast is touristy. I am glad I am a country boy!

The lobster roll was fookin’ awesome, however.

Karyn had one too, and Ken and Elaine had a bug each. Elaine gave me a claw….

img_4333

and I ate it!

I must say, Ken is a wonderful, talented man, and I am honored to be his friend. I have never seen that man smile as much as on this trip, and I have known him 28 years.

Thanks, Buddy. That was fun. Let’s do it again!

Sunset was lovely…

we had a lovely fire and retired. Norm, it takes a quarter of a bottle of hand sanitizer to start the fire, that seems excessive…Karyn gets us Fritos to try the next night….but we eat them.

We have the KOA cabin for three nights, so we get to exploring. First, shopping!

We saddle up, two up for economy, we can get into the park cheaper that way. Off the 8 miles to town we go, zipping straight into a nice downtown parking spot. Gotta love the bikes! Ooo, look! A corner bar! Elaine says “I could go for a Bloody Mary at some point” Ken and I look at each other, and “No time like the present!”

Ride and Party go to Maine!

Cool campers drive by as we sit and sip.

Love that VeeDub!

off for shopping…one good thing about touring on motorcycles, it does cut down on purchases.  I HAVE to get this T-shirt…

img_4280

that is a perfect tour poem…

img_4290

Fall is coming…but I am about 2 weeks early

img_4285

Town is pretty damn gorgeous, as is the day.

img_4284

two separate worlds there….

We saddle up and head off on the easy loop of the island, saving the longer one for tomorrow.

We stop and hike down to Sand Beach and take off our shoes and walk in the ocean again, sooooooo nice to see, smell and hear the ocean.

the amount of money on this island is insane, it makes Mendocino Money look like monopoly money.
