Got up late and had breakfast in the Lodge with Mas Tequila and a couple from Northern Virginia. Then we hung out by the pool for most of the day. Even the locals were saying it was hotter than usual.
Ice Cream (David) and I talked about a ride during the day but Bill posted that we would ride to Wolf Creek and check out their new improved restaurant. Ride would leave at 4:00 PM, and we did.
We headed out on NC 28 and only got to the Fontana Dam intersection, where we were held up for over twenty minutes waiting for a pilot car. They were grinding something on the highway.
I don't know if Wolf Creek is closed every Tuesday or if it was just this one.
We rode back up 28 and across 143 to Robbinsville, where we stopped at The Hub. We got there at 5:15 and they closed at 5:00, but the owner said we were the most business he had all afternoon and reopened to feed us.
After supper, we followed US 129 up to the US 28 intersection at the Crossroads of Time. Not stopping, we headed back down 28 and took a break near the dridge below Fontana Dam, Then we continued back to Fontana Village.
We turned in before 11:00 after making plans for a ride to breakfast and beyond tomorrow.
