Earlier this week, Bruce found a motorcycle shop with good reviews. He called them to set up an appointment to have them take a look at his motorcycle. The oil needs to be changed and the rear brakes need to be serviced. Bruce also wanted them to look at the front brakes as well.
The shop told him if he could bring the motorcycle in, they would fit him in.
He rode the motorcycle and I white knuckled the truck up and down the very sharp grades and super tight turns through the Lake Guntersville State Park on AL Hwy 227. Bruce enjoyed his ride and once the road leveled out, I felt way more comfortable driving the truck.
On the way back, we stopped at the boat ramp on the peninsula the campground is on. The road from the boat ramp is part of the Trail of Tears.
When we got back to the campground, Bruce started talking about a campfire. I was a bit hesitant at first, thinking it was a bit cool to sit out.
Bruce convinced me and while the sun sat, Bruce started the campfire.
I put on a hoodie and watched the fire. As it got cooler, I brought out our small blanket for my lap and Nox snuggled into my lap while watching Bruce and the campfire.
We let the fire burn for just over two hours, then I was ready to call it a night. Bruce doused the fire with water.
We showered to wash off the smoke from the campfire and went to bed.
It was a lovely day. I enjoyed the campfire and watching the sunset through the trees. It was vey relaxing and peaceful.
