Sometimes you just end up in places that you hadn't planned. Today I had planned to visit Bettencourts Honda in Bridgewater, just to loiter about. As fate would have it, I missed the exit. Not wanting to backtrack I decided to continue on with no plan. Picked up I-495 South to route 28..which I knew would go to Wareham and Buzzards Bay.  I must say it's always strange being in that town as my ex-wife lives there, and her family. No run ins. The Cape Cod canal is always a nice sight and makes for some great pictures. To my surprise, there was not a lot of traffic. The plan was to pick up route 6, across the Sagamore bridge and then cut over back to route 28 on the cape to Chatham, but time was waning and it was getting a bit cool (anything under 100 degrees to me is cool). So It was route 3A back through Manomet and Plymouth, right along the coast. 
     One thing stood out to me in both these areas, and that was the large number of houses for sale. In one stretch I counted 15 houses for sale, can't imagine what the asking price was for them, in Plymouth and right against the ocean. Recently there was a Great White sighting in Duxbury MA. So today by the beach there was a helicopter circling the beaches, my guess is that it was doing surveillance for potential sharks, but who knows...maybe someone escaped the local penitentiary...
     I often say that as riders, we develop a 6th sense for other traffic on the road with us. When riding, watching other drivers is essential for predicting who might be unaware of you and who is driving erratically. This proved true today on route 3N while headed home. A guy in a Lincoln who was speeding and changing lanes frequently (the constant lane changers are the ones you really have to watch). As he pulled up next to me at one point, I slowed down to give him space...sure enough, my instincts were right. He suddenly veered into my lane...I saw this coming just from observing his driving behavior.  The trick is to stay behind a particular car and watch them for 30 seconds or so. That is usually enough to give you a picture of what they might do...then you pull out and pass them quickly so they are behind you now and aware of your presence. That' s it for the riding lesson! Below are some pics...

Unplanned events are the best. Missing the exit is the best thing that ever happened to you. I am glad that you enjoyed the sight of Cape Cod Canal. Sightseeing and driving for miles and miles can relieve stress. I was planning to go to Massachusetts and visit my friends there. I guess I will make a stopover at Cape Cod Canal.

On the off chance that you invest energy staring at the TV, or perusing the web, you will doubtlessly observe many adverts from Payday credit organizations, urging you to get from them. In this way, paying little respect to which organization you work with, and whatever the press and media keep on saying, there is little uncertainty that Payday advances are a critical and genuine money related credit alternative for some family units today.

No guarantee: Arrangement of security is another noteworthy obstacle for a large portion of the general population in getting credits when they require money desperately. However this obstacle is no more there when you obtain payday credits.
