Touring though VA’s peninsulas

Post by Lokiboy » Sat Jun 22, 2019 8:52 pm

Cecil, Brigitte, my wife Theresa and I took a leisurely ride through three of Virginia’s four peninsulas. In 200 miles we crossed over six rivers, taking six bridges, and one ferry. The weather was fantastic and the company rounded out a wonderful day.

I wish I could have joined in on the fun. Looks like Theresa got one step closer to climbing into the sidecar. She'll have her own rig before you know it! :D
