Dinner at Birdies Perch

The plan today was to meet at 4:30pm and go for a ride, the highest temperature today was 22°celsius (71.6°fahrenheit), so it was a bit cool (especially for us - this time of year) and when the sun hid behind the clouds, a strong breeze kicked in but that didn't slow us down.

We took our usual route, driving through Amherstburg and hitting highway 50, through Kingsville to Leamington where we had a yummy dinner at Birdies Perch.Screen Shot 2015-07-02 at 10.01.48 PM

We had a great ride there, sometimes riding the Lake Erie Coast line can be a bit chillier, although I was comfortable on the way there I thought it might be a bit to cold on the way home,  so we chose a route that was more inland, it's also fun to switch it up a bit. On the way back it didn't take me long to wish I had put on my sweatshirt, I ended up stopping on the gravel shoulder of the road in front of a farm house that was set back quite a bit from the road. I was pleasantly surprised when the owner of the house came over to us to see if we needed help, I'm not sure how he felt about my 'being too cold' story but we were appreciative of his kind intention.

I find it completely freeing to ride, it doesn't take long to get to farm land, there is something about driving in the country that relaxes me. I also enjoy living on a peninsula and being surrounded by water, I love riding along the water even if it is dotted with houses. What a great way to spend 2½ hours of our evening!
