Pie!



Located just north of Armada, MI -- a rural farming town about 30 miles north of Detroit. Best piece of pecan pie I've had since the last one my southern ex-sister-in-law made for me over 30 years ago!

And I have never ridden this many days in a row. In full summer riding kit. In the middle of March. In Michigan!!

Pictures of the pie would be appropriate so we can make comments on the quality of the pie. If no pictures are avalable this lapse will require a second ride to this establihment in order to procure the pictures.

Sometimes you have to have a really fast camera if you want to get a photo of the pie.

I've been longing for a good piece of lemon meringue pie for the last two months. Had some on the cruise we just came off and it was terrible, like lemon-flavored glue. Wife says she will make one for me but if she doesn't do it soon I am just going to buy one locally. What a combination...pie and cycling! Love it!
