July 29th 2010 - starting to make videos to include in this RR soon!

I know it sounds as though all we are doing is complaining about the weather but we have to be honest about the east coast humidity. Last night we slept in what we believe to be 90% humidity and 80 degrees. We both slept not a whole lot and had a long day ride. In any case it was fun to be back in a tent and out of the road. We left camp really early around 0630 to head towards Boston. We got to Boston right at rush hour and Cheryl did not feel like stopping. Needless to say bad timing on our part but we did get to see the skyline etc.



Around this time we were starving and decided to eat at a Diner’s, Drive In’s and Dives. These restaurants are featured on the Food Network show and we downloaded many on to our GPS. Found a great little diner called The Little Depot Diner in Peabody, MA. Web site: www.thelittledepotdine.com .






There we met the owner Judy Miles and her sister Terri and a man named Bill. Had a great breakfast, great conversations and in the end Bill bought us breakfast. Now that was what this is all about. Meeting interesting folks who are interested in what we are doing and generosity. Highly recommend this place and hope others will check them out. Thank you Judy, Terri and Bill.








After the diner we again headed north to Cape Porpoise Maine to visit an old neighbour I haven't seen in 19 years. Brief stay but it's about quality not quantity.





Back on the bikes in 90 degree + weather and humidity of course to try and get to Bar Harbour Maine but no go. We ran out of time and steam. Ended up in Boothbay and it is so quaint. Had lobster rolls at the Lobster Dock right on the water. Awesome and we got our lobster.


YUMMY! warm with butter!


Rode around the town on my bike and checked out the scene, bought beer, had ice cream and headed back to camp. The humidity is gone and it feels like we are going to even have to snuggle tonight as it is cooling down nicely. Beautiful camp ground, Shore Hills Campground.













View from our site!



Nice sunset and so cool out!





without humidity makes for a great day of riding!





Hung out by the fire, drinking a beer or two and planning our route back west. We were thinking Bar Harbour is a must. 2 hours from here and then after that we will start our journey heading west.
