April 24th-27th, 2010 pt.1

Yesterday we were invited to stay with Timmer in Seattle.  We arrived just as it started to rain.  We were greeted by Timmer’s lovely wife who helped us settle in.

Timmer arrived shortly after and the four of us went to a place called Berry’s BBQ for dinner

As soon as we walked in, I could tell we were in for a real treat.  The place had a lot of character.  The walls were plastered with old jazz memorabilia, airplanes, and photos of celebrities who have eaten here.  There wasn’t much space, just a table for two and a large table where everyone sat which made it feel as if you were eating at someone’s house.  The four of us shared the large table with another couple who had their meals recently served to them.  I looked over to take a quick peek at the serving portions of bbq ribs and was astonished.  The man who took our order was none other than Berry himself and when it came time for me to order, I just pointed over to our neighbors and said, “I’ll have what they’re having”.


There was absolutely no room for desert, just enough to fit a few jelly bellies in. 

Berry wouldn’t budge when it came to divulging any information regarding his secret sauce.

The next day, Timmer and his wife had some errands to run and it was raining on and off for most of the day.  Timmer had left us a plethora of motorcycle DVDs to keep us occupied which included Riding Solo to the Top of the World and Advanced Dual Sport Riding Techniques.  We watched the first one back in Las Vegas with mpanther.  We managed to go out for a quick jog when the skies cleared up, but it didn’t last long.

Sunday morning the four of us had a delicious waffle breakfast…

…went to church…

…then went for an urban ride around Seattle.  First stop: Touratech! 

What a beautiful day!  Everyone seems to be out and about.

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat.

Classic American lunch.
