Day 8 – 10 miles
Another great day at The Governor’s Inn, Rochester, NH. The weather looked like it was going to take a time out so after breakfast we jumped on the bikes and headed to the Maine border for a photo op.
For lunch we headed back to the Garage for another fab lunch. I had the Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Soup. The radio station was tuned to Pandora – theme – British Invasion – Beatles, Rolling Stones … etc., music right down my alley. The food, coupled with the great tunes made for a perfect cold, rainy June afternoon.
There was a whole new crew of great people working today – Lucas, Dave and Julie. Below: Julie and Dave.
We visited quite a bit with Julie and learned that her father-in-law, Bob Bujeaud from Campton, NH, authored the book Time Out: An American Journey which chronicles he and his wife Theda’s five month motorcycle trip through the lower 48 in 2005. Frank and I can’t wait to get home and purchase the book from Amazon.com. Bob does more than ride around the country. He also builds custom motorcycles. If you get a chance, check out a photo of his home-built Covair wood cabinet trike, reminiscent of the 1950’s “woodie” which he has appropriately named “Miz Woodie” posted at Whitehorse Gear Open House 2013 website. It is quite impressive. Here’s a shout out to Lucas, Dave and Julie. Hey! It was great meeting you. Julie, sorry we didn’t make it out to Bob’s for a visit. Maybe our paths will cross again. You guys are the best. PS – Thanks a million for the complimentary round at dinner. What a pleasant surprise!
Dinner back at Spaulding Steak & Ale where we met even more good people. We sat next to Diane and Eben Huston from Rochester. They recently returned from a trip to Costa Rica with their daughter Alicia and her boyfriend. From Costa Rica they traveled to Panama where they lived on a boat for a week fishing. She showed me photos of the fish they caught. It looked like they were in Fisherman Paradise. She told me if I want to check it out go to PescaPanama.com.
Another great day wraps up.
