We all decided it would better to take a day to visit rather than ride. After all, isn't that why we came, to visit with our fellow bloggers?
Sunday we found Bob desperately trying to find any Wi-Fi hot spot he possibly could, the poor guy felt gagged without his internet and his chosen media of expression.
We wandered around Joseph and took a few photos while we waited for Karen and Erik to arrive. The town is full of bronze statues, Trobairitz took many more photos than I.
|A wolf relieving himself? Poor, poor Mary.|
|Richard actually standing still long enough to snap a picture.|
|Then I turned the camera on ourselves.|
|Bob being Bob|
|Point your way to safety|
|The welcoming side of the "Please come again" sign|
We found a shop that carried neon green Croc knock-offs or what we called "Croc-offs" for Erik. Bob found a shirt to match his pink Crocs.
|Twice as tough!|
Brandy and I hadn't eaten all day so it was time to find some lunch...
|This sums up the vegan menu in Eastern Oregon|
I'm trying very hard to stay positive regarding the variety of food made available in "Cowboy Country" but when you have to explain to restauranteurs what vegan means you seriously have to wonder if these farmers nowadays even know what a vegetable is anymore.
|A very poor excuse for a pie.|
At least the company was fun and kept our waning morale up. Bob had a brown cow rootbeer float while Erik enjoyed a milkshake and Karen some huckleberry ice cream. We headed back to Bob and Richard's hotel/cottage to relax in the shade all day.
We watched momma deer and her fawns cross the street.
|I've never heard a fawn call to momma before...|
|and they sound like kittens "meow" "meow" "meow"|
We chatted all afternoon under the canopy of a large maple tree and like the others said it was great to visit face to face rather than ride. I enjoyed the down day.
It was too soon we were off to find some dinner and walked down to "Mutiny Brewing"
Sorry Fuzzy, more food photos...
After dinner we went back to the bikes, suited up and said our good-byes. It was great to meet you Karen and Erik, I'm able to add an asterix to two more blogger titles on my blog roll as bloggers I have met.
