I met Jim in Perry on Saturday morning, from where we rode to Lynn's Quality Oysters in Eastpoint, where Ken and Gary awaited our arrival.

These are the wonderful raw oysters served inside. Apalachicola Bay is currently closed, so these came from Texas
There, we had some raw oysters and steamed shrimp to hold us for the ride to Port St. Joe.

After getting settled in Port St. Joe, I wanted to ride up to Mexico Beach, where we found a great spot for a few photos of the little wooden scooter.

On Sunday, the four of us headed to Cedar Key in what turned out to be a nearly 300 mile ride after several side trips and stops.

We checked in to the hotel and had dinner at Tony's, famous for its chowder. Gary had fun with the server and everyone was entertained.
This morning, I handed Scooter Bob off to Ken, his new handler. Ken hasn't been on the list yet, but will be a fine host.
