600 Mile Journey

This past weekend was about this:

Biggy B and I went on a 600 mile Harley ride to spend some time together, just the two of us. Summer time is our busy time so there isn't a lot of quality time spent together.

We started out on Saturday morning with no agenda, except that we wanted to ride through Wisconsin. They have better roads for riding then Minnesota.

My mom was happy to know that we wore our helmets the whole trip.

I won't bore you with all the details, but here is a picture blog of our ride.
Neat Pub we stopped at on Lake Namekagon

They had a really neat saying on their menu that pretty much summed it up for us and our weekend!!

That night we stayed in Drummand, Wisconisin at a cute Bed and Breakfast.

We were up the next morning and on the road at 8am. Stopped to take a picture of these sunflower fields.

Our destination.....Madeline Island on Lake Superior. Brian has always wanted to see it, so we figured we would see it on our Harley's.
On the ferry going to Island.

The view looking back at Bay City. I think the neat old buildings had been a convent at one time.

I think my favorite part of the island was this place.

Named "Tom's Burned Down Cafe" because it has burned down twice. The best thing was the decor.

The whole place was filled with signs painted with different sayings.

We had planned on staying somewhere else for another night, but Biggy B started getting sick. We pushed the 350 miles home yesterday afternoon. By the time we were home Biggy B had chills and fever. Put him in the hot tub to try and warm him up. He has been in bed ever since.
I am pretty sore from the riding, but all in all it was a great journey!!

Wow, what a fabulous trip! I love the first pic of you and husband, you are gorgeous milady!

Now, if only I weren't terrified of driving anything with only two wheels, lol, I would join you for a moto ride on Isla! (I've still got scars from my last two wheel adventure). :)

Cancuncanuck...I love my two wheels here, but in Cancun...absolutely not!! Crazy drivers scare me enough in a car!!!
Thanks for the nice compliment. Can't wait to meet up with you next time I make it down.
