Loved the hermit crab - neat!

How did you now there would be one in there? Was it moving around before being snatched?

Damn I miss California! (Particularly now. ) Used to be out there for a week every month.

I had no idea they liked pasta.


























Tidal pool exploring is a favorite past time. Thanx!

Hard to tell with the small ones. They can be snails too. I found this guy by picking up the shell and looking.
:)


More pics in a bit.

The limp home.........

A few of us decided to take Pescadero rd aka the long way home........

Angryscot, Longtallsally, Popey and myself.

A few things took place here, but most important, a lesson was learned.

A new/unknown rd, testosterone and speed is not a good combination.
It is ALSO proof that we are never totally in control.
Anything can happen at any time, regardless of skill and years riding.

This is what happens when you get comfortable in your motorcycle skin.
Fortunately, the rider was wearing full gear and an additional back protector.
Not 10 minutes earlier, he was telling us how wearing it on the street was his New Years commitment to himself.

It paid off, because he landed hard on his back and walked away.
He was also fortunate the he slid out in to a shallow and soft ditch.


The bike.........









The front wheel was bent and had a fair amount of wobble.
We decided to go back and take HWY 1 and keep the speed at about 50 mph.
I followed him back to SF to make sure he was ok and to stand by in case something went wrong......

It was a long SLOW ride home............








I'm not sure either one of us had ever actually on our own gone under the speed limit

The 'I'm OK' ride to Pierce Pt. AKA the spook lap.

Decided after a morning of work to get out and enjoy the sunshine.
Met Popey in Petaluma and decided to show him the lovely Pierce Pt road I discovered the other week.

He's in one piece, but no KTM for a while....... :(








Stopped for a small 'break' at the pine cone and spotted another cool ADV bike......
Makes me miss my Jesse bags!!!!
Can someone light a fire under AL for the tiger bags???








And away we go...........

Another fantastic day on the coast!
