    I found the tag Beard mentioned on the t-o-r map and then it made sense.

    Neat ride! Wondered what was down that way, now I know.

    Ali seemed quite happy to see the water. Perhaps he was thinking of old friends. . .. Or food. :rofl

    So we went looking for food. Ali wanted to go the same place we went last year on this date. I said we couldn't, 'cause it'd be a dupe. Ali said, ok, then how about a doner. I said we couldn't do that either, because going to that bistro that would be a dupe, too. Not one to give up easily, Ali said "why don't we head there anyway and honor the day? Perhaps we can find a place nearby that sells the same product." I said "ok." Not done yet, Ali insisted that it be apple and made by Mom.

    Success! :wink:

    Ali was over the moon! He hopped on the counter and dared anyone to take what he now claimed as his! :freaky

    Sadly, they were sold out of fruit pies, but Ali looked around a bit anyway: :cry

    Then we went back to the bike:

    And Ali went to hide here:

    For the record, I just realized that Gunston Road ('A rotund song' anagram) turns into Potomac View Blvd. at the last minute before hitting the river. Sorry if I totally confused anyone with shoddy directions.

    When you pick up Ali tomorrow morning....
    Get a good cup of coffee and a KILLER cinnamon roll (warmed up)
    and maybe a pie too.....
    or two, too!

    I can hit this place with a rock from my back yard,
    well almost.
    Well surely with a two wood.

    Crap, I have the four letter word to deal with... Work...

    Between work, and home chores, my riding has been limited to work and back. Now I was going to get Ali at the anagram location, but glad I didn't go, it would have made the second time in a row that I would have been bruced by NovaRider...

    I thought for sure you'd made the grab! But I did leave a note just in case you headed that way. . .. :rofl

    Tag:
    Ali needed to do some walking after lunch, so we headed out of town. Too bad I had to go to work or I could have gone for a stroll as well. Ali likes to swim for exercise so i looked for a ford where I could drop him. Well, this guy Arthur, who runs some dance studios, happened to have a Ford, and a bridge. Too bad the bridge is fallen down and on private property. Anyhoo, I decided to leave Ali close to it so he can go there alone. I would have to be a Syco to go in the water with Ali.

    Ali is hidden in the guard rail which keeps wayward riders from getting good photos of planned tags

    By the way, mr Turner has a Farm, but I don't think its for sale




    I really like Doner Bistro, but its certainly not KLR friendly. What I had was over $10. Not only did I get a slice of pie, but a Linzer Tart and a Black&White cookie. I might save the pie for my girlfriend for later. Maybe
