More Fall Fun!

Post by TWrenn » Tue Sep 15, 2020 5:09 pm

Yuuuup! Our club guys were at it again today. Perfect weather, Art & Bill corroborated to do a tour today of the Marblehead, OH & Catawba Island area, adjacent to one another. Catawba Island really isn't an island, as it is connected to the mainland via a thin strip of highway land.
Had our usual "Covid style" picnic at East Harbor State park, on Lae Erie's shore, after a quick stop at Marblehead lighthouse. Oldest continually operating lighthouse on the Great Lakes. Emphasis on continually.
Ran into some muddy spots along the way, picked up some mud on the car! Oh no!!
Naturally on the way towards home we HAD to stop for ice cream.
This tour took us out on about 4 miles each way on a 4-lane stretch of OH Rte 2, over Edison Bridge. Wasn't bad. Bita heavier traffic going home but no one seemed to mind. Perfect day.
I plan on dragging the gang out next Tuesday for a country run out along the Sandusky River. Gotta cram it in while we can!
I'm picture crazy, so will post a second batch separately. Sorry 'bout that! I just hope they're right side up!! LOL

What a great day for it Tim! This weekend we are heading to Silver Lake MI. To a buddy's place with the cars to do our" Run through the woods". The little RPU will be running with the big dogs. A 29 Cheverolet, 31Grahm Paige, 25 DB, 28 DB Victory 6, 26 Buick, 26 Durant. Im sure I will have time to snap a pic or two. We all belong to different clubs but have a great time driving together. Its hard for all of us to get together as we are all still going to work every day. Usually OCF is when we are all together but we try to do this also.
Thanks for showing us how its done!

Tim, why are you posting all your vertical pics horizontally? Is it a new way to stretch your neck muscles? :)

LOL Dan!! Nahh, I wish that were the reason. Seems the ones that are a bit smaller file size keep going horizontal. For the life of me I've tried to correct it. I even would rotate them in my computer file, figuring they would "correct themselves" upon posting. Nada, nein, no way. So I give up! I keep forgetting to track down Chris to see why, and see if there's any way he can make this program quit doing it.
