Day Trip to Lahave,

Crescent Beach, and Blue Rocks. Slow Phil, Fred Green, and Yellowknife were the participants on this cold and beautiful fall day.

We met at 9:46 am in Middleton to start the day off right with some hot coffee. The temp started at plus 1.3 Celsius and by the mid afternoon reached 8.5 C.
As you are aware the intake of Coffee is inversely proportional to the outside temperature. That is all I will say about the Coffee subject.

After the coffee we motored to New Germany and quickly got onto the old rail line from New Germany to Caledonia. Nice trail.
Hopefully Fred got some video of the run that he can add. We ended up on the 208 and went GPS direct to the Lahave Outfitters (Bakery).
It was very busy there but the service and eats were excellent.

Crescent Beach

As you can see bikes are allowed on the beach. The water was calm and we had a blast running up the beach.



From the beach we went to the Lahave River ferry, and then went direct to Blue Rocks, with a minor stop that Slow Phil can elaborate on if he cares too.







Then the Katoom and Vstrom needed to top up. I waited patiently

You missed a good one, it was fun on Crescent beach roosting along the sand, of course the best spot was following so you could watch Dana wallowing across the sand desperately working to keep the bike up

Lahave ride

pics of Lahave outfitters

The three amigos



There was a lot of action inside


Birds on Crescent Beach



we coerced a beach walker into taking our picture, told her Dana was Ewan MacGregor on his Beemer



Crescent Beach



The Lahave to RiverPort cable Ferry



One of us didn't like the price tag, but was outvoted



The coolest bike in the world......in the eyes of it's owner



At Blue Rocks











By now it was getting on in the afternoon, so we buzzed for home. It was down to 2 degrees when I rolled in the drive. I think a good time was had by all.
