The Hogs Have Arrived… Ocean Shores is hosting the 2007 Harley Davidson Ocean Shores Run and the town is filling up with “Hogs”. Yesterday we ran into town to watch the town and vendors get all set up. Fact is, they even had some great entertainment for those of us that wanted to get an early start. We’ve seen them on TV before but this is the first time that we’ve watched the flying bicycles in person. It’s amazing how these young men and women get these little stunt bicycles flying so high into the air and then go into some twists and turns, release of the handle bars, or just lay out flat as they fly through the air. It was very entertaining. We looked into all the booths that were showing so many items related to motorcycling, and then there were the tattoo booths… In all the business that was conducted yesterday, the tattoo booths took in about 90 percent. It was amazing. Lou had set up for a haircut in the afternoon so we ran for lunch and then on to her appointment.
Today (Saturday) we pulled up stakes and headed on down the coast to Long Beach. Leroy and Claudia Ostrem offered their hospitality and a place to park the motor home. It’s not always that we get such an invitation (actually we get a lot of them and wish we could get the time to take in all this great hospitality), so we were very happy to take it. Last year when we were in the area, Leroy and Claudia were just about finished with the exterior construction and were starting with the interior. Now it is finished and what a great job they have done. Well I was going to show you a picture of a flying BMX bike, but i erased a lot of pictures from Ocean Shores...SORRY, but here instead and looking better than any-old BMX bike are Leroy and Claudia in their new home.
