Speckled Butterbean Restaurant
It was a chilly morning by Florida standards but then again, it’s been a cold winter. It was 54 degrees when we headed out to Crystal River Harley to start our ride. In the 30 minutes it took to head up 19 to the dealer, it dropped to 48 and the wind started to kick up. I stayed nice and warm though, my daughter Kristy was visiting, so I drove the ‘Ladies of Harley vehicle’, taking lots of pictures along the way.
It was “kick stands up” at 10:00 am for our 14 riders and with Steve as road captain we headed out to Webster and the Speckled Butterbean. The cold weather was not a deterrent, everyone was decked out in leathers, and some had heated vests to ward off the chill. We snaked around the winding back roads, the Spanish moss waving in the wind, through Citrus, Hernando and Sumter Counties.
We arrived at 11:30 and enjoyed a delicious homemade buffet of all the country favorites, mash potatoes, fried okra, fried chicken, meatloaf, salads and ice cream and cobbler for dessert.
Our HOG chapter loves to eat and all our rides seem to begin or end with food or at least ice cream! We had a great time with great people and look forward to our next ride.
