S: Out Big Trip 2011

FC: Our Big Trip 2011

1: Our Trip Mascots

2: After a very short day of being at work we were off. A small group of co-workers saw us off and Ed showed off the new air horn on the BMW as we left only to burn the fuse out. This was something we did not fix till we got to New Hampshire. | July 29, 2011

3: 87

4: Alway nice to find places to stop and see something interesting. This one was in Circle Montana. Lots of cool junk!

6: Salem Sue

9: After a long day we were just happy to find a room, the last room in Jamestown after finding none available in Bismarck. The hot tub was a welcome bonus | Great Falls, Montana to Jamestown North Dakota 1100 KM

10: Duluth, Minnesota This wasn't our longest day but we were still tired from the extra long previous day. I remember cresting the hill in Duluth to see the amazing site of downtown Duluth with Lake Superior as the backdrop. The next day we had to make a stop at Aerostitch but were a bit surprised to find how low key of a place it was.

12: I don't mind saying that the Mackinaw bridge scared me. Five miles across and a mile of corrugated bridge with gusty winds not fun.!

13: Mackinaw City

14: Started out the morning of August 2 a bit wet, but this dugout gave us some relief to get dried off and into rain gear. | We'd heard about the Tunnel of Trees from another biker we'd met in Red Lodge, Montana just before riding the Beartooth highway. Ever since it was must see for this trip. | Tunnel of Trees

15: Excellent meals now that we are all warm and dry. | Passing through so many states. | Drying out gear and keeping the bike covered was so nice in Warren, PA.

16: We made it to New Hampshire | Time to Un-Wined

18: Leila and Gwen's Engagement Party

26: Back on our own again, we drive north to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and then East towards Maine.

28: As we ended the USA portion of our trip, we had one of our wettest days as we passed though Maine. We did manage to drive by Steven King's house which was cool. We had a few hours of downtime in Saint John, NB so we could catch the late Ferry to Digby, NS

30: Welcome to

31: Nova Scotia

32: One of many Nova Scotia Ferries, this one was a shortcut to Lunenburg

33: We meet Teresa and Brian for lunch in a little pub in Shelburne half way between Yarmouth Lunenburg

36: Peggy's Cove

37: Lunenburg

38: We Left Lunenburg on a foggy morning and made our way north to Dartmouth to have a coffee with Mavia a friend Aunt Helen’s. After we followed the East coast north and finally across the province to Antigonish. Then across the land bridge to Cape Breton and the town of Baddeck.

39: Baddeck

40: Our first of two Ceilidhs we attended in Baddeck, NS. A Ceilidh is a traditional social gathering in Cape Britton with traditional Gaelic music consisting of a fiddle player leading the music with an accompanying piano player.

44: Farewell to Nova Scotia

45: Prince Edward Island

46: We started our P.E.I visit by visiting two lighthouses. The first was the Cape Bear Lighthouse which was also a museum. From there we made our way around the island to Panmure Island and little lunch beside that lighthouse.

49: As we left P.E.I we found this beach and we decided to play. Sheila with Mrog and me chasing birds. After that it was on to the confederation bridge and New Brunswick
