Country Roads Take Me Home


Randy and I took a beautiful motorcycle ride last night.  He drives and I ride on the back…didn’t want to mislead you into thinking we have two!  Although it was hot during the day, because of the low humidity, the evening was chilly.

I told him I’d like to ride around and take some photos…so we rode for about two hours on country roads.  I wasn’t able to get him to stop for some of the photo ops…it was tricky on the roads…also having to turn around too much.

Something I find interesting is that when other people are driving, I get a little nervous and am quite the back seat driver, but when we’re on the motorcycle I feel really comfortable.  I feel a sense of freedom…and I tend to live more in the moment…experiencing the sights, sounds and sensations.

First we rode to a covered bridge that is shut down for repairs.  I would’ve taken a photo of the front, but there was a big ugly sign on it stating that…so here’s a photo of the inside…

This barn caught my attention…love the blue!

I like old barns…

This was a cute homestead…

It was starting to get dark…

I thought you might enjoy this photo I captured the other morning of an owl in the backyard…

Anyway, we ended up riding to a bar called “Plain Folks” that’s located in Pleasant Plain, Ohio, and met our neighbor there.  I didn’t take my camera in…but it’s a really cool place.  It used to be a school house and last night was “open mic night”.  Some really talented people sang and played guitars.  Everything from “On the Cover of the Rolling Stones” to “Take a Load Off Fanny”.  For being out in the middle of no-where, the clientele aren’t your typical “redneck” country folk.

We’re trying to get out and enjoy the weather before the rain starts Saturday!

  1. I hope these photos will be on a Pinterest board called “Things I see on the back of our Motorcycle”. OK, maybe not that, but you get the idea. 😉

  2. You live in a nice area .. love that baby blue barn – I like barns too … not many around where I live. Nice bike … many years since I was on a bike – but it’s just exactly what you say … a fantastic feeling of freedom and worrying. The bike suits you. Love the little owl – had one as a pet when I was very young.
