August 9th 2011–LOON BAY
Sunrise over Loon Bay, not that great the sky was too clear.
Nice morning but got a little rain in the afternoon. I took a walk up the street to get my morning coffee while Cheryl slept in. We really had no plans today except to ride and explore a bit, and we did.
The bikes felt so LIGHT with the panniers off. Completely different feel to them. We only got to ride a little over 500 KM without luggage so the weight is all we know until today. These Tigers are really fun to ride with just the rider. Although they are still heavy bikes, we both felt they were as nibble as can be on all these rocks, sand, clay and hard pack roads.
Got our chain cleaning stuff, after getting gas we did the deed. The chains are back to being clean and shiny with lube once again. Maybe Triumph should make this bike with a shaft?
Our little canoe trip out on the lake we took before dinner.
Loons make a lot of noise at night for some reason but they are sure good looking birds.
Yesterday and today I thought I could hear juvie Bald Eagles calling out. Sure enough on the canoe we found the nest, saw two juvies branching, calling out and we spotted both adults not far away from the nest.
So, leisurely day we had, took the bikes out for a fun ride for over 200 KM today. Got out on the lake, saw some wild life, Cheryl found a Geocache nearby, ate dinner, having smores and hanging out by the fire.
Tomorrow we are leaving our little sanctuary and most likely will spend one more night out and then home.
