Boca Grande and headwinds

Nice plug for Ernie's Bike Shop, back home in Massillon.
Great big Banyan trees on Boca Grande Island

Larry and I ate at the Loose Caboose Restaurant.

We drove a short way to Lemon Bay park and then rode a 55 mile loop out over to Mannasota Beach and on to a 9 mile stretch with a tailwind to the causeway that leads to Boca Grande. Larry and I ate at the Loose Caboose in the shopping district, others when out to the WhiteHouse Restaurant about 3 miles down the beach for Conch and Grouper and other good fried stuff. Followed Bud and Margie Scott back to the section where the head winds started -- they live local and they went on home. Toni had a meeting at 5:00 to go over the next week's rides. There will be about 15 of us staying for week number two. Tonight we went to Pop's Sunset Grill over near Casey Keys. Weather was still cool, but really it has been great to ride in weather that isn't so hot we are roasting all the time. Suppose to be 71 degrees tomorrow -- and warm up for next week.
