Since I just got home after spending 4 hours at the E.R. with Mrs. Samthg, my response was less than enthusiastic, "sure let's ride".
It was Xmas eve and the festivities are finished at my brother's house and we are on our way out the door when my wife missed a step and "went over the bars".
I can attest, No alcohol was involved, she took not a sip or gulp all night(she probably should have). So Xmas morning at 6am we are sitting in the E.R.. Fractured ankle!
So it's 11a.m. when my youngest son, Chris, calls and says he's got a few hours free until g.f. duties with her folks. Let's ride dad?? Can you?? I was not in any mood, to tell you the truth, but I knew I would later regret not riding with him since both our time is so limited. So we meet up at the shop, get the bikes out...
Chris rode my R100, and I took the KLX. Headed out of Seal through Long Beach with Palos Verdes as our destination. Mileage wise not a long trip, but it sure eats up the time making a ton of stops and exploring up all the side roads and canyons. The Palos Verdes Peninsula is really a pretty impressive area with fantastic views of the Pacific. Big $$$ real estate up there too!
Heading north out of Long Beach past the Wylan art convention center to San Pedro and across the Vincent Thomas Bridge(I had to use some old pics I had of the c.c. and bridge).
Our point of destination was the Terranea Resort.
As we got here I made sure I weaved my through all the Mercedes & Lexus' to make a loop through the horseshoe valet area. We got some crazy looks doing that.
Decency is overrated.
Proof we made it..
A few more shots from the grounds of the resort...
In the distance is the Point Vincente Lighthouse...
After a bit more touring of the peninsula, it was off to home with one more stop at the Trump National Golf Course..
Turned out to be a fantastic day with cherished time with my son. Thanks Chris.
