Independence Day Ride
Bob and I went for a motorcycle ride yesterday. We rode to Wellsboro PA, located approximately 2 hours west of where we live.
We departed home at 9:00 am and stopped for breakfast at Don & Lu’s Place in Smethport. Bob’s breakfast consisted of a bacon and cheese omelet, toast and coffee. I had scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries and toast for my breakfast. Both breakfasts were very good. We arrived in the vicinity of Wellsboro around noon.
Wellsboro is home to Pine Creek Gorge, which is better known as the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Two parks, Leonard Harrison State Park and Colton Point State Park, provide spectacular views of Pine Creek Gorge.
From Leonard Harrison State Park we rode into downtown Wellsboro, where we took a short walk along Main Street to the town square.
While walking along Main Street to and from The Green, we heard piano music.
This piano is one of several located along Main Street. The pianos appeared on Main Street on June 22, at the beginning of Wellsboro’s Summer Fringe–a week-long exploration of the performing arts including music, dance, theater, art, writing, poetry, comedy, storytelling, and photography.
Our last stop in Wellsboro was at Colton Point State Park, where we once again admired Pine Creek Gorge.
On our way home we stopped for dinner at the Barrel House Restaurant and Tavern, located at the intersection of Routes 6 and 219 in Lantz Corners. Bob ordered a prime rib steak salad; I ordered a taco salad. Both salads were delicious.
We returned home around 7:00 pm, tired but happy about how we spent this year’s Independence Day.
