Some of our vacations on the bike are just for the roads and scenery - like riding the Tail of the Dragon, the Back of the Dragon or the Blue Ridge Parkway. Day rides don't provide the same curvy roads or breathtaking mountain views, so we plan a trip to a historic location or a new place for lunch.
Sunday's trip to Yorktown was lunch trip. We ate at the Carrot Tree in Yorktown on the Riverwalk Landing. Troy had BBQ (we are big fans of Mission BBQ and that is the gold standard). I had the Strawberry Fields - turkey, brie, strawberries, almonds, lettuce on a croissant. It was yummy! And the Carrot Salad was good too - very different from the usual one made with mayo and raisins. We shared a piece of Carrot Cake for dessert. (yes I am kind of a foodie.)
We needed to walk off some of the cake so we took a short stroll along the Riverwalk.
