I was up early and out in the garage, my goal to be down in Alma for breakfast at 6:30 before they got busy at Pier4. Easily away in time, the Ascot and I made the 45 minute trip with a few minutes to spare. A beautiful early summer day early and on a motorcycle, just about my favorite way to spend time and yesterday's early is my favorite time to be outside.
My ride was a short one, breakfast only since there are just too many things I've been neglecting (and intend to neglect through the next weeks) around home. I did stop in Wabasha, back on my side of the river to check out the boat landing and that's where I had a chance to reference river history, my memory and his, with old timer #2.
The ramp is squarely beyond the lamp post. I see that the electrical tower in the background appears to be vertical.....the Warning sign and lamp post may be succumbing to the constant river currents?? :)
Old timer #2 after putting his boat in. I wasn't fast enough to capture his entire 100 meter drive from the 'center' of the bay back to dry land. He's at the 50 meter line here......
