Today was actually, for the first time, a “rest day”.  We woke up and *walked* to Arvid and Liv’s house, where we were treated to a lovely breakfast, followed by doing the tourist thing in the beautiful town of  Skudeneshavn.  First, Arvid drove us to his Motorcycle Club lockup.  A fantastic playground where all the members shared equipment and could come and go as they pleased, along with a meeting night every week.   To me, this idea of a bike club worked better than the ones that meet every week to simply go on rideouts.  They had a few bikes in the middle of work.

They were also good enough to try to raise money on our behalf.  The poster was on the wall, which was perfect for a “thank you” photo after we all signed it.

After leaving the club, we headed into the town, which was both stunning, touristy and “local”.  People lived, worked and played there.  A stunning town, not ruined by business, tourism or pollution.  While walking through, we stopped in a fantastic little coffee shop, served by an elderly famous man that has been there many years.  Coffee and waffles.. order that or water :)

Of course, some sillyness followed.

Of course, after all of this we had to head back and get ready for our ride to the ferry.  Most of the MC club were heading to Denmark for a meetup with other riders, but sadly we had to say goodbye to Arvid who couldn’t make it.  The rest of them escorted us back to Stavanger and onto the first overnight ferry home.
