We got unpacked into the KOA cabin and went exploring…
that is not a lake. That is the Atlantic Ocean.
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…
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….
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…
that is a perfect tour poem…
Fall is coming…but I am about 2 weeks early
Town is pretty damn gorgeous, as is the day.
two separate worlds there….
We saddle up and head off on the easy loop of the island, saving the longer one for tomorrow.
the fog layers are really pretty
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.
back to the cabin for cocktails and….you guessed it
Mine’s name is Dinner!
hmmmm, mmmmmm, good!
Boiled Bug. That plate was $23.
foggy as hell today, glad we got out yesterday. Today we loop the other half of the island, the southern and western sides
lighthouse keepers abode
next was a old car and motorcycle museum
that is a childs car made by Bugatti…$7k in the depression. Priorities, eh?
check out the horn on that bad boy.
Henry Ford’s personal car on the Island. Hood ornament hand made by Henri Cartier himself.
’34 Ford runabout…
the amount of money on this island is insane, it makes Mendocino Money look like monopoly money.
back to the cabin, gotta pack up.
