One weekend this past March, while we were all still adjusting to the “new normal” of CoVid19, it was warm enough to ride.
We decided that time on the motorcycle was the ultimate way to be socially distant.
Typically we ride 100 miles or so before stopping for lunch at a local pub. In light of the times, we all packed our lunch and enjoyed each other’s company from a distance at a roadside picnic area.
Then we headed back out on the beautiful back roads of Southwest Virginia. See those splat marks on the windsheild?
I guess it was the warm weather that had so many bugs out and about.
We rode through several rural counties, along too many back roads to count, and the wind in our faces helped us to put aside the worries of the day.
I can’t wait for more rides like this one!
Peace! and Stay Well, my friends
Thank you for sharing. Stay safe, stay healthy.

So glad to see you here on the blog! You take care, too.
Looks like you had a beautiful day for a long ride Laurie 🙂 I guess the bugs aren’t that big on social distancing though.
Ha! They most definitely are not! No riding this weekend though as we’ve had freezing temps the last two nights. How ’bout you?
It’s been pretty old up here also Laurie.
Good to see you still manage to get that bike out in the fresh air from time to time Laurie – it sure looks like an enjoyable way to spend a day ❤
It truly is …. being outside, feeling the wind, looking at the sites … all goodness!
I bet you’re glad of the windshield!!! Looks like a great day. Stay safe!
Thanks, Lisa! These freezing temps have kept me off the bike lately, and of course, have had me covering my plants. How is your garden holding up?
Things look great. It’s bursting with blooms and the plants I have in are all doing well. Not sure when summer crops will get put in though. It’s time to plant beans, and I don’t see that happening soon.
You have a remarkable way of seeing life’s positives. I’m so glad you got some bike time.
And I’d love to have more bike time … darn the freezing temps! Thinking of you today, for you are an amazing mom to many, not just Chris and Mac ❤
Laurie, you are so dear. I hope this miserable polar cold snap is the last of your winter weather, and that it is smooth sailing into spring and summer from now on. ox
Look brilliant ! I bet the scenery was amazing and air (sans bugs) refreshing. That’s a pretty old bridge and I’d worry about 12 tons, but I suppose tiny littl’ you is well under that…hehehe! 🥰😉❤️
Hello dear friend! Thank you for taking a few moments of your time to visit me here. We need to zoom again soon! Love you!
It’s been so long since I’ve been on two wheels. It looks like you had a wonderful ride.
