We had the continental breakfast and spoke to a young couple from North Carolina who were on their way to visit Deal's Gap for the first time on their Harley. Their enthusiasm and youth made me think back to our first road trips in the 1970's. I wish them well in their motorcycling life together.
We headed out on I-64 for Monticello, where Thomas Jefferson had made his home, at 8:30. The rain was coming in waves, first light and then torrential.
The rain let up and then we unloaded the truck and took the bikes off the trailer. Then I moved it to where Suresh suggested, unhooked and parked the truck.
We joined the early crowd for supper at the 2nd Street Restaurant. We drove at first but, after I came back to the motel to secure my computer, I walked back because it turned out to be almost across the street. Back at the motel, we hung out for a while before going to bed.
