Day 127, 9/12/10 - Conneaut, OH to Near PA State Roads 5 & 89

Just the Basics: 43 miles on generally great roads with excellent shoulders, and some bike trail - although we experienced some confusion trying to follow our map through Erie, PA.

Tonight we are in a cute little cabin on Lake Erie at the Lakeview on the Lake Motel, about 5 miles west of the intersection of PA State Roads 5 and 89. We're rather far from any restaurants so had a "motel picnic" for dinner. Appetizers: Fresh local Concord grapes we bought at a stand about a mile before we got here, almonds, and Starbucks instant de-caf, which we enjoyed sitting in Adirondack chairs looking out over Lake Erie. Main Meal: Backpacking Mac & Cheese and a lovely fresh tomato given to us yesterday by Cousin Deb; Dessert: Fresh peaches (also a gift from Cousins Deb and Larry), cookies, and Peach-Spice Herbal Tea. = ) = )

We saw a cardinal today when we stopped for lunch! It was either a female or a juvenile, but definitely a cardinal. Lunch, by the way, was great. It was at a bar & grill but we shared a wonderful vegetable pannini (eggplant, tomato, peppers, onions, cheese, etc.) and a great bowl of homemade potato-bacon soup. YUM!

Today's Photos: (1) Speaks for itself; (2) Our Quaker Heritage!

Tomorrow: About 40 miles to a Clarion Hotel on the outskirts of Dunkirk, PA

For Those Who Want More: That's it for today.

  1. Hi, Becky and Riley. We've just left Barnhouse, where we were for about three weeks, and are in Boston with Ben and Trina, going home tonight. Now that we're back in broad-band territory, we can follow your trip. Does your route still take you through Vermont? I'm glad to hear you've made it to PA and the east. We'll be back to OCFM next week, and will think of you and hope we see you before too many months!
