No Motorcycles Ellen!

This morning the weather was perfect for a motorcycle ride, so John and I decided we'd do a run and take a small camera with us. John said that I could strap the SLR unto the back of the bike, but when I asked if Ellen could come along he said that probably wouldn't be a good idea. Anyway, off we went up the Southern Shore Highway with the intention of stopping somewhere for lunch, but when we reached Bay Bulls the fog was rolling in and it was pretty cold riding through it, so we decided to turn around and have lunch somewhere nearer home. That didn't take too long so we decided we'd do some errands and that was when John said that there'd definitely be room for Ellen. Hooray!!

We decided that the photo shoot would be at the dock in Portugal Cove.  (You can see Bell Island in the background of the second picture.)  Seagulls were plentiful and not very shy. Seeing Ellen didn't get the opportunity to ride the motorcycle, she really wanted to wear a helmet so we thought, "Why not?" After all she did manage to balance a glass dish with a hat yesterday. And, seeing this blog is supposed to be knitting related, Ellen agreed that she would wear a couple of skeins of yarn from Artyarns, namely Cottonspring and Alpaca Silk - two lovely yarns I purchased from Fabulous Yarns. Have to figure out what to make with them.  Any ideas anybody?


  1. you could knit Ellen a motorcycle. Or a racing vest. Tres chic.

  2. Ahh...a racing vest. I'll have to see if I can design one!
