On Saturday, June 6th, Bob and I went for a motorcycle ride that added 190 miles to our odometer. We left home around 11:00 am and didn’t return home until after 7:00 pm. We rode to Lake Erie State Park, where we enjoyed a picnic with a view.
From Lake Erie State Park we rode west along Lake Erie, via Route 5, en route Presque Isle State Park in Erie, PA. We made two photo stops. Our first photo stop was at Barcelona Harbor in Westfield, NY. Our second photo stop was at Dobbins Landing in Erie.
From Dobbins Landing we rode to Presque Isle State Park. We made several stops during our ride around the peninsula.
We saw the marina for the first time this Winter. Saturday was the first time we had seen boats at the marina.
We stopped at the North Pier Lighthouse. I have taken lots of photographs of the lighthouse over the years. The majority of the photographs have been taken, while standing on the pier. I wanted to capture the view from another vantage point. Instead of walking along the pier, we headed in the opposite direction along the North Pier Trail. This trail follows the shoreline between North Pier and Beach 11, along one of the sand ridges. There were several paths along the way, leading to the lake shore.
Our last stop, while at Presque Isle State Park, was at the Presque Isle Lighthouse.
The lighthouse wasn’t the only attraction for me. The beach was of interest too.
From Presque Isle State Park we rode to Peach Street, where we ate dinner at the Texas Roadhouse. I ordered a 6 oz. Sirloin Steak with a fully loaded baked potato and House Salad. Bob ordered a Rib-eye Steak with. House Salad and Broccoli. Both meals were excellent.
Thus concludes our day ride along the shores of Lake Erie.
