Shoot Me #11 #12 & #13 of 52

Whenever FW and I get the opportunity to be without our loving and adorable teen girls because they are "occupied" with friends, you won't find us on the family pontoon boat. Nope. You will find us enjoying "we" time on the motorcycle. Just him and I riding free to usually nowhere significant. Sometimes we will simply take a short ride around the lake. Sometimes we will just ride around the neighborhood. And sometimes we have a destination. 

This time, our destination was the small quaint town of New Oxford, PA, which is less than 1/2 hour from our home. We came upon historic Kuhn Tavern hoping to quench our thirst from the long ride. Only to our disappointment, did we learn that Kuhn Tavern is no longer a "watering hole" so to speak. The tavern has been a museum and historical site for many years. The museum was closed, but we were lucky to meet the current owner, Mr. James Stock, who happened to spot us peeking in the windows of the renovated building, which originated in 1763. How lucky were we to get a personal guided tour inside?!

Here I am pictured below with Mr. Stock. We are standing in the downstairs hall archway, which is the only original part left of the building.

Since we were thirsting for a cold drink, we did what any biker would do....we moved on to the next "watering hole" and found ourselves at Scozzaros Old Mill Inn, an Adams County landmark situated between New Oxford and Gettysburg. We had a nice dinner on the deck and then we headed 15 minutes West to historic Dobbin House Tavern located in the heart of Gettysburg for our after dinner coffee. It was certainly an enjoyable quality evening spent with my hubby prior to having my surgery.

When we were traveling we were stopped -- on the highway - waiting for a huge houseboat to come thru. The couple in front of us were on their separate bikes, in black leather.

It was very hot outside. I think I;d chose white leather ?? hee hee

hey... you look good with your bike.
