Awesome long weekend!

View from a look out on the Loop.

This weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada and it was perfection!  Crisp fall air, plenty of sunshine, food, and of course a Moto adventure.

We had an amazing ride with friends and we even spotted a ginormous black bear lazing on the sunshine beside the road.  Needless to say I wasn't anxious to play Goldilocks and check out whose porridge was too hot or too cold.


We rode about 250kms and it was glorious!

Look at those grins!  Yup a little bit of throttle therapy was just what we needed.

Then top off the weekend with some yummy turkey.  It was a little iffy because halfway through cooking, the element in my oven decided it was throwing off the cooking chains and stopped working.

Nescessity is the mother of invention!  I was able to continue cooking on the BBQ while my hub went to the hardware store to get a new element.  The turkey was too big for the BBQ so I had to wrap foil around it to keep the heat in.

Viola turkey dinner!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving! It sounds like you had a great weekend with a little throttle therapy.

I've heard that turkey cooked on the grill was pretty good.

I'm an idiot for never finding out about Canada's thanksgiving. I'm going to research that right now.

Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving. Alas, there's no such holiday in Germany...

Glad you had such a good weekend. Riding and eating and a lot of sunshine sound perfect.

Is the PIE Lady still open ? She had a shack at the Marina in Port Renfrew. Over that log bridge then turn left. Near the marina gas station

Did you have lunch at the Hotel ?

I used to work summers at Mesachie Lake, just West of Lake Cowichan when the Mill was still open

Riding and turkey at Thanksgiving, if only we'll be that lucky! I may just have to start a movement down here to move ours up a month (5 weeks?).

Those are riding smiles if they're anything!

Nice work with the BBQ! We had turkey with all the trimmings at my sister's in Toronto, with three kinds of pie, home made ice cream, and 13 people at the table. The way Thanksgiving should be.
