Port Dover is a fishing port.
Port Dover is a beach town.
Port Dover is a retiree community.
Port Dover is a bedroom community.
And every Friday the 13th Port Dover becomes a motorcycle magnet.
The legend is now well-known: Thirty years or so ago, a bunch of buddies rode their bikes to a bar. They had such a good time they vowed to do it every Friday the 13th, and invite their friends.
Who in turn invited their friends.
Now, Friday the 13th attracts thousands of motorcycles to Port Dover, and tens of thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands, of visitors. The town becomes, for all intents and purposes, closed off to any vehicular traffic that rolls on more than two (or three) wheels.
That means a lot of walking and shuttle buses and hassle, if you aren't two wheeling it into town.
But, got a boat? If you can find room to tie up or raft up on the wall, you're in.
This year, the weather was...less than promising.
If there's no room on the pier, you can always drop anchor inside off the beach...inside the marked swim area.
Cool or uncool? I dunno. Nobody is swimming, or likely to be swimming, but. it seems like it's a little like parking in a handicapped space. Yeah, sure, nobody else is using it now...
Pontoon boats, sport boats, new boats, old boats, big boats, small boats, runabouts, bowriders, cabin cruisers, dinghies, fishing boats, trawlers, tugs...
