Another Great Motorcycle Ride

Another beautiful Saturday and another great motorcycle ride.  After breakfast at the Brass Ring Cafe, we took the back roads as much as we could to the Morris Museum in Morristown, NJ.  We went for the New Jersey Rocks exhibit expecting to learn about all the famous New Jersey rockers.  We arrived just before opening time so we had a few minutes to wonder around outside.  It was a surprise to see a Seward Johnson Sculpture.  The NJ Rocks Exhibit was well worth the entrance fee of $10. The other inside exhibits were very cool.  Music boxes, player pianos,  and early French Automata.  We learned about New Jersey's contribution to the Rail System and sat and watched the miniature train go round and round the track.  There was also really cool Heads and Hands exhibit showing purses and hats dating  back to the 1800s.  We learned that next month the Museum will have an exhibit entitled "100 Years of Motorcycles".  I guess that means we will go again.
