On Top of the World

This guy is cherished and lives on top of the world.

12 Bones Smokehouse, Arden

Early morning ride. Clear, bright blue sky. 

We stopped at 12 Bones Smokehouse in Arden for lunch. The line to order snaked out of the door, but we were happy to wait in the beautiful sun.  An auto repair garage turned BBQ haven, 12 Bones serves the best slow smoked ribs. Period.

Fun on the Parkway

Steven liked this shot, just after the Pisgah Inn, heading south
Beautiful afternoon on the parkway. The sky popped with rich color and clouds. We feel playful and good. After over a week, we just got the bike back from the $hop after replacing the back tire and the drive belt.

Tunnel Vision
Going through the tunnel, suspending a moment in time. I like how the display panel lights up red and the light blends into everything. Life moves quickly. I enjoy experimenting with the camera.

I said looking at him, "love so deep it fills the sky."
I rested in the grass on my stomach, shooting pictures. I soaked in the view and captured Steven walking about with the setting sun behind him. Not a bad shot. I do love the grass thistles that need trimming. Look at how pretty they are in the light.

Celebrate Life!
Then Steven took this photo of me, which I like a lot and used as my new Twitter avatar.

Pausing with my iPad atop Mt. Mitchell

We are always looking for uncharted territory, new roads, new adventures. We are curious, anxious to learn and see. Or we are trying to recapture past experiences with renewed wonderlust. We live a charmed life on this Harley.

The joy is in exploration. Gear up and breathe in the surroundings. We have this love affair going with fresh air and Mother Nature. We glow. We are alive.

"Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, 
is still the secret of great creative people."
~ Leo Burnett
