So, took off yesterday morning and headed east out to Palatka. No big deal there, though there were a larger number of bikes on the road than usual because of bike week. OnÂ the east side of Palatka I had decided to take a different way out to the coast, which included going through a place called Dinner Island. What the map didn’t mention is that most of this road happens to be a dirt bog, which is kind of hard on the bike.
After wasting a good hour trying to figure out which way to go, I gave up and headed back to route 100 and went the normal way. The rest of the trip was relatively uneventful, except that getting through Daytona took about three hours. That plus the mud bog set me back so far in time that I got a room just south of Ft. Pierce on the beach.
Had dinner at a place called High Tides on the beach. While the clam chowder was good, the fish and chips left something to be desired. The fish breading was thick and salty, and I just couldn’t bring myself to finish it all. I don’t really recommend going to this place ever again.
