Mellow Yellow - and Buddha to boot!

My friend, Brian/R1Rated, and I had been talking about getting together for a little jaunt... in fact, we talked about it for months but never did it! lol But finally, schedules and weather collided in a positive manner and the game was on...

First things first... coffee and catch up...


When we first arrived, it was overcast and looked like it might even sprinkle a little... but we sat and chatted for about 2 hours, giving the sun a chance to burn off those clouds and come out with its hat on (musical interlude)...

Spring is definitely sproinging everywhere...


We headed up 152 and turned onto Pole Line Rd... I love this huge tree at the intersection of Pole Line and Mt. Madonna Rd... its weathered many a storm and is still standing... my kind of tree...

Before heading down Mt. Madonna Rd., I remembered that there was a monastery somewhere on Summit Rd. that I had seen photos of but never seen myself... since time wasn't an issue, away we went on Summit Rd... but first stopped to smell the flowers... big patch of daffodils...


Summit Rd. then gets quite narrow and bumpy/goaty... I was getting a little worried that I had missed it when, voila!! I found Buddha!!!


Hard to be sad around the happy Buddha...


Other statues to be inspired by...






More cherry blossoms...


RAWR!!


Brian was inspired to rub his own belly for good luck... Buddha was happy...

Down Mt. Madonna Rd... love to put the bike in neutral and coast all the way down...


Great view...




They call Mellow Yellow, quite rightly...


Musical interlude - part deux...

Until we came to rest in the bustling beach town of Capitola for a late lunch...

Lots of folks out enjoying the day...




Mine...


Jonathan Livingston...


Painted ladies - Capitola style...


After lunch, Brian headed south for Marina and I headed for home via San Jose-Soquel Rd. and Old Santa Cruz Hwy... blessedly empty of other vehicles, I had the roads to myself and thoroughly enjoyed a spirited romp toward home...


Great ride with a great friend and Buddha to boot! :cool

FIN
