Guests drove up on twin BMW’s. Nostalgia set in, remembering when I, too, toured the country on a motorcycle. Dangerous, exhilarating, always exciting. Lets you see the world up close and personal.

They loved their jobs and shared delicious stories, I served Apple Pancakes, and we talked about books and deafness and what it’s like to deal with life and death on a daily basis. They loved to read. Suggested a book called “The House of God.” Anyone read it? Running a B&B allows me to be both reclusive and social, the richest of combinations.
