It was perfect weather on Saturday, perfect for our ride down to the Ft Lauderdale area where we would meet up with Stu's late wife's oldest daughter, Kim, her husband, Tim and their two boys, Jesse and Brady as well as introducing Sadie to their Weimaraner, Spirit.
We took a leisurely ride down I-95 (yeah, right....definitely could tell when we hit the Palm Beach and then Ft Lauderdale areas). It was a nice ride with one rest stop for us all. Sadie modeled her new helmet and Doggles...at least for a bit. LOL!
We spent a wonderful afternoon on the patio watching the dogs play and just catching up to date. Then Kim cooked us some delicious shish-kabobs on the grill. More chatting and Tim arrived home from work. More chatting and catching up to date while the dogs finally rested.
Stu took Brady, the youngest, for his first ever motorcycle ride. He loved it... They rushed to do it before dark and I managed to snag a couple of pretty sunset photos, unfortunately the power lines ruined the shot. Oh well, you can see the colors!
We spent the night at La Quinta Inns & Suites. Sadie wasn't too sure what to think about the elevator though...but she was a trooper. She ended up sleeping on the foot of the bed between us...it was a king, fortunately.
We headed out early to have breakfast with the family. Our only issue was heading out to get the bikes loaded up and finding them getting doused from the sprinklers. Never a dull moment...LOL!
Sadie got to play with Spirit again while we went to IHOP. Good breakfast and conversation. We headed back to the house to pick up Sadie and say our goodbyes. Another great ride home...two perfect motorcycle days.
Sadie was beat so we thought to take advantage of it and headed out for a 5 PM movie. We opted to see "Paul". We loved it but it's not for everybody...lots of swearing, very irreverent in religious areas and pokes fun at a whole host of Sci-Fi movies from the past (Men in Black, Mac and Me, ET, The Green Mile, Star Wars, Star Trek, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Aliens and more). But we laughed for the whole time....and would watch it again.
Just doesn't get much better than this....life is good!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
