Our friends Joan and Keith invited us over for a BBQ on Saturday. Come for the day and we'll keep it simple they said. Hmmm...steaks they served....and huge ones at that...far from simple....but ooohh sooo delicious!! mmmmm
After supper, Keith asked what we thought about going out for a ride on his motorcycle. Hmmm....wearing a skort, tank top and sandals....I was hardly dressed for such an occasion...but no worries Joan said....we'll fix you up.
She let me borrow her chaps (leather pants), boots and socks, her motorcycle jacket (which has built in elbow pads...they felt similar to hockey players' pads) and her helmet. The helmet was equipped with a microphone....so Keith and I could talk back and forth without yelling, as we went along.
It was a beautiful day....sunny and lots of blue sky. The area we are from in Ontario is quite flat compared to the never-ending, steep hills of Newfoundland. The WOW factor of many of these hills are quite often more than enough for us to get used of. Just imagine what it was like on the the motorcycle! We toured around Maddox Cove/Petty Harbour (picture here...scroll down a bit).....beautiful small town...before returning 45 minutes later to St. John's.
Breath-taking, beautiful and amazing ride!!!
When we returned......it was Larry's turn.
Needless to say...after the yummy dinner and a ride through the open clean air of Newfoundland....we all slept very well!!
Thanks Joan and Keith!
As per usual ...I did not have my camera and didn't get any pictures. Hmmm...guess I'll have to get another ride...just so I can get some pictures... ;)
The sun gets up so early....and it gets really light long before the sun peaks up over the ocean's edge.
Here's what 5:00 a.m. this morning looked like in Pouch Cove....
