Apalachicola Again, With 7BSC.

The spring 2017, 7 Bridges Scooter Club ride, is a two night affair this year.  Yesterday we rode over, 250 miles west from Jacksonville.  There were 11 riders.  Five more were to meet us from the west, three from Pensacola, one from Dothan, Alabama and one a short ride from Panama City.

Our ride originated at Famous Amos Restaurant on Normandy Boulevard, a fine meet up place as it offers breakfast and is close to the open roads we prefer.

We got off fine, hitting traffic lights either red or green long enough to not split us up.

After another fine BLT at Pouncy's, we continued towards Apalachicola.

9 of us stopped in Eastpoint at Lynn's Quality Oysters, then we rode over the bridge to the Gibson in Apalachicola.

The Gibson in a historic old Victorian hotel in the middle of town.  It has a wonderful bar and wrap around porch that suits us well.

We had dinner at Boss Oyster, then a chat on the porch before I turned in at around 10:00.

    Good times. Nice to contemplate on a cold, drizzly day here. So much for an early spring. :( Better weather awaits!

    1. Dave, You need to take a "Spring Break" and come down to ride with us. I have two good scooters ready to go anywhere.
