Ken let me know that he was finally ready to ride after knee replacement, and scheduled a meet up at Larry's place near Newberry.
I rode the nice route down from Jacksonville and met him there mid afternoon, Saturday.
Larry was there and I went out for BBQ dinners for us as we were getting in on a zoom meeting with the VCdM group.
Our destination Sunday was three courthouses. Volusia County in Deland, Flagler County in Bunnell and St. Johns County in St. Augustine.
Ken's chosen route from Newberry to Deland was a good one. Curves and hills in Florida are rare, but these roads had some. We also rode through the beautiful horse farms around Ocala.
We have now seen 50 of the 67 courthouses in the state.
We ended up visiting friend Deb at her RV park in St. Augustine Beach before Ken headed to his hotel and I rode home.
It was great to get outside and riding again. Can't wait until the next one.
On the way down just north of Lake Butler.
Dining outside with a fire and zoom.
Dining at lunch Sunday in the shadow of the Volusia County Courthouse in Deland.
Volusia County Courthouse. With Covid and on a Sunday, there is no going inside to meet the workers.
Flagler County Courthouse. We prefer the old ones. This one is not the courthouse anymore and we didn't bother to go to the replacement.
The St. Johns County Courthouse was in this historic hotel building for years. Luckily, it has returned to its original purpose as a hotel, and a good one right downtown.
