Bob and I rode to Winchester, Kentucky, on Tuesday, June 9th. Winchester was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981. The business district looks much as it did over a hundred years ago with the five globe lampposts and elevated sidewalk. We walked around the courthouse and up and down one street.
After taking a few photographs, we departed Winchester. On our way back to the hotel we stopped for lunch at the Waterfront Restaurant & Lounge, located a few miles from Winchester. We learned that the Waterfront is the home of Thursday Night Riders. It being Tuesday, we were a little early for bike night.
We returned to the hotel in the early afternoon. We spent rest of the day, relaxing in our room. We ate dinner at the Waffle House, to which we walked. A funny thing happened while at the Waffle House. I ordered a hot tea. The waitress brought me a glass of iced tea, without the ice. I reminded her that I had asked for hot tea. She took the glass of tea, placed it in the microwave and returned the glass of tea to me. I shook my head and said that I wanted regular hot tea, the kind that you put a tea bag in a cup of hot water. She finally gave me the hot tea that I ordered.
After dinner, while on our walk back to the hotel, we stopped at the gas station/food mart located next door to our hotel. It was only 8:00PM, and the gas station was closed! I had hoped to pick up a 6-pack of diet cola.
We learned that a fellow VROCer by the name of “Sundial” went down in Pennsylvania on his way to the rally. According to the VROC website, “Sundial” has broken ribs and possibly a punctured lung. He was transported to the trauma center in Altoona. Bob and I wish “Sundial” a speedy recovery!
