Getting Some Much Needed Vitamin HD

Where has the summer gone? It seems to be flying by along with the opportunities to get on the Harley and take a trip. Or even just a ride. It seems the weather doesn’t cooperate or people are working, or have other plans and the time and the days tick away.

Life has been stressful these days so when the weather turned gorgeous finally-no humidity, no rain-we decided to take a short ride with our good friends.

I feel lucky to be living where we do. We can pull out of our driveway in the country and just have road, blue skies and green everywhere.

And of course…cornfields.  Lots of miles of beautiful green cornfields!

Beautiful Clear Lake is close by, so it is a perfect place to take a ride around on a day like today. We take the back way there, so there is much less traffic and much more scenery.

One must stop on your way around the lake is a very busy destination-The Viking Drive-Inn. It is know all around for the place to stop for soft serve ice cream! If you are a first timer, there is one thing you must know.  The sizes are GENEROUS!  Here is mine-a small twist!

Back around the rest of the lake before heading home.  It is so great to take in the sun, the sky, the water, the green, the fresh air, the breeze.

I highly recommend these short trips at any time. Sometimes it isn’t about how long you are on the bike, but that you are.

The Harley Davidson Museum

Recently, the husband had a couple weeks of vacation. He decided to take a couple days and go see something he has wanted to for a long time-The Harley Davidson Museum.

He took a ride, alone, to Milwaukee to check it out. He grabbed a hotel room close by for two nights and made a mini-vacation out of it!

He looked at a lot of history, took a tour and ate at the restaurant in the museum.

I do know he wants to go back and check it out even more. It has so much to offer! Next time, I plan to go with him!

He took a lot of pictures and here are just some of them!

Thanks, Tom for sharing your pictures!
