As if we needed any more encouragement there was also a vintage car show happening in Merrickville, a picturesque little town on the banks of the Rideau Canal, about 60 miles away. So we decided to ride over for lunch and a look at the cars (more accurately, I would look at the cars; Miz Liz would go shopping).
Merrickville is an artist’s community with many galleries and shops selling unique handcrafted items and a couple of good pubs and restaurants. On any summer Sunday you can expect lots of people out visiting for the day, but today it was really crowded! It was 1:00 when we got there so we headed straight for lunch and after checking the line-ups at several restaurants found a couple of seats at Gad’s Hill Place. After an excellent lunch (sorry Bob, no food photos) and a pint it was time to check out the cars.
And the requisite motorcycle photo.
(There are more pictures over at Picasa if you’re interested.)A nice 200 kilometre ride, a great lunch, and a couple of hours drooling over some awesome machinery – life is good!
And tomorrow it’s on the road again for points west – Waterloo and then Port Dover on Friday the 13th.
