Fog doesn't really do that

I always thought these Adidas shoes were pretty good, until they got a bit damp and started sliding off the pegs. Good thing I only had to stop for one light and put my foot down.

A friend of mine and I road our new Honda 160's up California Coast Highway 1 in 1967. It was foggy the whole way. I was wearing street shoes and my feet just about froze. I could barely operate the shifter and brake pedal. We stopped many times to thaw out. Well, sort of thaw out.

We made the return trip down highway 101. By then, the fog had lifted. Our only problem was keeping up with traffic. We hugged the gas tanks and managed to cruise at 65.

Ragged Point, CA

Made it to Ragged Point again. Foggy going up and clearing skies going home. Ocean went from gray to a deep blue.

I had Hanger Beef, which something I've never tried before. Very lean and very tender. It came with red rice and corn. And as always, the M235i felt right at home on Coast Highway 1.

I need to take more "on the way" shots as well. There were many rutty, bumpy dirt turnouts on the ocean side on the way home that I was tempted to take, but passed. My flimsy excuse is that I didn't want to get my brand new Michelin Super Sports dirty.

I completely understand! I would avoid a great restaurant or what have you if it had a dirt or grass parking lot so it doesnt get stuck to the tire dressing

A Very Special Place

Today, we drove south to a very special place for lunch. The Mason Bar & Kitchen is located on the corner of Mason St. and East Branch St. in Arroyo Grande, CA. My great-great grandfather owned and operated a general store in this exact location during the 1920's to 1940's. My mom worked there after school during the early to mid 1940's while waiting for her fiance' (my dad) to return home from WWII.

My wife had a Salmon Salad and I had a BLTA.

1-That must be touching to be inside that piece of family history
2-The BLT looks PERFECT
3-Def looks like a cool building, type of place I would like to visit. I'm picturing it as an old General Store now. With barrels full of nails, boxes full of electrical box fuses, and tools. Wish you had an old picture of it back in the day

Went over the Centennial Bridge to the Island. Lunch in Summerside at Brothers2 for a Lobster Club and a Gahan Brown Ale.

I was going through some older pictures.

This is my trip to Mt. Washington two years ago in late September with a couple of Blue Knights who invited me to come along for the ride.

First stop was in Bethel, Maine for the evening. A very quaint pub and B&B.
I had the bangers and mash for dinner and a few Guinness.

The next morning was a perfect riding day, fresh and nothing but blue skies. I carried an electric vest because I knew the summit would be mighty chilly. Thank goodness for heated grips and saddle as well.

We stopped at the gate, paid the toll and got our stickers. Going up that narrow mountain road is not for the faint of heart. Especially on the long stretch of dirt and blind corners.

The T went from 14C to 4C.

Enjoy the pics.

( Pic of the toll gate from their site.)

Found some from a few weeks ago also....took a ride a few exits away to Stottlemeyers Smokehouse. Great BARBQUE and bands under a Tiki hut behind a very non-descript gas station...just no where near water is the only downside.

Drove to Windsor, NS to eat at The Spitfire Arms. I heard they added a new outdoor area due to inside seating restrictions. They call it The Alley and for good reason because they simply added a roof to the alley between them and the building next door. It's a very pleasant space.
Of course drinks were first on the list after about an hour and a half cruising the "B" roads. I had a Schoolhouse Principal Ale that was brewed literally right across the street at the Schoolhouse Brewery. (We'll be going back to check them out in the future.) My friend had a Wayfarers Hellene Blonde Ale.
Next came Deep Fried Pickles with a Spicy Mayo dip and Scallops with a Maple-Bacon sauce...delicious! For the main it was Fish and Chips for me and my friend had a grilled Cheese and Mushroom Melt with parmesan dusted fries and a garlic dip.
Now we couldn't leave without at least hearing about the desert menu. Yup, we were sucked in by the Turtle Cheesecake and the fresh-from-the-oven Bread Pudding with Blueberries and Caramel Drizzle.
On the way home we detoured to the Kingsport Look-Off. There's a fantastic view from up there of the start of the Annapolis Valley and the Bay of Fundy. As a bonus we found a drive-in theatre and have made plans to go see F9 next weekend. It's been a VERY long time since I was last at a drive-in.

Had pancakes. Didn't take a pic as I didn't want to disturb the other patrons.
