Picture Perfect Day!
To think I almost didn't make it today! I started the day really trashed. Long night dealing with my job. some how I managed to stay awake long enough to get off at the right stop. Dan got there just about the same time, John a few minutes later. Weather was great with clear skies.
Our first Coffee of the day.
Dan trying to be inappropriately sexy "El Monte y El Diablo."
Dan and I had some coffee before taking off. We took time to admire the pretty Senora behind the counter and did manage to get some flirting in even with my slow sleepy brain. I wasn't really into riding, but once I got the circulation moving in my body I got more into it. The route that Dan brought us on was really scenic! I'd done the upper road but not this lower route... much better! There was very low traffic and lot's of photo ops.
The property with all the sculptures was really neat and John getting attacked by "Lola the BiPolar" dog was funny!
Riding across the Bridge for my first time in Carquinez was a fantastic experience!
The three of us were a great combination for the day. Melo & middle aged youngsters with lot's in common. We were the "Blabbiators." Probably the best part of the day was stopping at the "Valona Deli"...They had the tastiess sandwiches in the world!
If I look a little distracted here...I had the camera set for automatic, but right when the shutter clicked a very hot looking lady walked by the window!
I was sleepy and spacy most of the day, falling into silence and a little out there...I was hoping Dan and John were'nt getting too bored with me.
I had to end the ride early for myself, I was just too tired even though I was really enjoying myself, so I bailed out in Orinda. I kept falling asleep on the Bart...I was hopless.
Thanks you guys for the company I really enjoyed myself and I'm ready for some more "Hooky days"
