Adventures: Part Two

Tennessee Dual Sport: Southern Discovery

One of the milestones Fritz set for himself on his road to recovery was the participating in the above rally with our Andy.

He had bought his road worthy dirt bike just before life was put on hold and then picked up a spare when the docs told him to begin to resume normal activities but start out light.
(I have a hunch they didn't exactly mean start out with a lighter motorcycle, or a bike at all). 

We spent the weekend at a beautiful property outside of Nashville

with Andy's in-laws and a very fun group of their friends. So while those two were off climbing hills and two-wheeling through streams, the rest of the gang set their minds to fishing.

That evening the tilapia and small bass turned into ceviche, while the larger bass were grilled whole with lemon and dill. Delicious!! So perfect with several glasses of wine.
The next morning all the small brims were lightly coated with cornmeal then panfried. I am a convert to fish as part of breakfast.
These fine folks really know how to live.

I learned a lot about fishing and can't wait to try new ways to prepare goodness for the lakes and rivers nearby.
Best of all, I had some really nice chat time with Andy's Kathleen, her mom and all the ladies.
Maybe, just maybe we can make a return trip sometime and I can learn a bit more about hunting and cooking wild turkey and venison.

Thanks everyone.
It was a great Adventure!

I wonder what is next????

Adventures: Part One

It's often said that laughter is the best medicine.

And that a change of scenery is good for rejuvenation.

Combine the two and travel to Martha's Vineyard with friends near and dear to our hearts and call it a successful healing getaway. 

Such a charming island with it's quaint villages,

and stunning shorelines.

Fabulous drive arounds, marvelous meals most often involving lobster, lovely liquid refreshments,
and Lots and Lots of Laughter.

Many thanks G's!
Sharing a beautiful place with two such beautiful people was wonderful.
