Memorial Day Weekend: Monday

On Memorial Day (Monday, May 25th) we went for a motorcycle ride with friends.  We left from the North Warren Playground parking lot at 12:30 pm. There were 14 riders and 8 motorcycles. Our friend, Mark, led our Memorial Day ride.

 Our first stop was at The Farmer’s Inn in Sigel, PA.

It was our first time, too, ordering BBQ chicken dinners.   Each of us enjoyed BBQ chicken dinners–½ chicken, potato salad, baked beans and a roll. Our dinners were delicious and inexpensive, at $7.99 each.  You may have noticed that the sign at the entrance to this part of the restaurant said that BBQ chicken dinners were available on Saturday and Sunday only.  I think because it was the Memorial Day holiday, BBQ chicken dinners were available on Saturday, Sunday AND Monday.

 

After dinner, we enjoyed looking at the goats.  There were lots of baby goats!

A truck pulled up with a couple Amish men inside.  The goats came running to the barn.  Please click on the image shown below to view video of goats running to the barn.

The goats were not the only babies we saw.

The baby lambs were so cute!

Everyone had fun shopping at the Bulk Food and Candy Store. Several of us bought a variety of flavored Gummi Bears and other candies to share.

We enjoyed sitting in the gazebo, chatting together.

Two more friends and two of their friends joined us at The Farmers Inn, arriving a short time after we had eaten dinner. We waited until the four of them finished eating and we had chatted some more before continuing our ride. On this next leg of our ride there were 18 riders and 10 motorcycles.

From Farmers Inn we turned left onto Rt. 949 and rode past Clear Creek State Park and through Clear Creek State Forest to Ridgway, PA.  We made a fuel stop at Sheetz in Ridgway.

From Ridgway we followed Rt 219 to Custer City, where we stopped at the Custer City Drive-In for ice cream.

We took routes 770 and 59 back home. We returned home around 7:30 pm.

It was a perfect day for a ride, not too hot or cold.  You might recall that I had put my liner back inside my leather coat for Saturday’s ride to Niagara Falls?  I wore my leather coat without a liner on this ride and was comfortable. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. What was the best part of the day? … sharing the day with our friends!
