I gave him 2 cameras to shoot with and he took the direction well.


He def had a lot of laughs, most at my expense :) ……

So I bid my farewell to the men as they headed to SF and I took off up to the Bolinas ridge...
The subject now behind the camera














Stinson Beach from the top of the ridge……..
















I'm always amazed at the gracious amount of parking up here…...

















Not Stinson Beach……

Last wednesday…...

It was one of those mornings.
Coffee.
Emails.
Pending work at the shop.
Sun.
Lots of sun.
More than we'd seen in a while.
All of a sudden, I'm like a deer in headlights and I can't for the life of me
stop checking out the gear in my peripheral….


Work or play.

work or PLAY…




Oh God, I'm weak…
Stand by…..

Last wednesday continued…..

I caved.
At least I went and worked until about 1:30…
THE WHOLE TIME THINKING ABOUT GOING FOR A RIDE.
'I'll just work late tonight….' is what I often tell myself,
trying to justify the few hours I know I'll be gone.
Little did I know that this night would be just as nice as the day……





The landing on Cronkite Beach….













.

Remember this view for later…..










As I'm getting off the bike,
this kooky Samoan looking surfer dude walks up to me,
oddly enough in motorcycle boots,
and tells me It's going to be crystal clear out here tonight.
He points to what would technically be classified as a motorhome and tells me 'he's got a front row seat to the spectacular moon tonight.'
A little spooky.
And a little awesome.


He had tattoos up and down his arms and a big gap between his front teeth, only evident because he smiled nonstop.
For a guy whose probably getting roughly 3 gallons to the mile, he was happier than anyone I'd talked to in a while.
I told him he was in charge of the bike and I took off to the water………









.






.











Right about now, my new kooky friend came up to me again and said 'see all the little jade on the beach…..'
I had to smile because here was a guy, probably about 60 or so and just grooving on life…

I pick up rocks and shells every where I go.
Even if it's just one tiny one.
And naturally I said 'can I take a picture?'…….










.


Married life…….
or so I hear….








.

California January…..

haven't checked in on your (mis-) adventures in a while. Glad to see you are still as entertaining as ever!

Every time I check in I am reminded what a nice area of the country you live in. I like it so much that the GF and I started searching house listings in Marin. I think NYC has had 3 days above freezing in the last month, (6F yesterday morning) and I can't remember the last time I looked outside and didn't see snow. At times like this, like clockwork, we start looking at relocation options. Seems to coincide with the checking of flights to sunnier locals... and bike rental searches

EDIT:
its snowing again!

Be prepared to spend a lot of money for a little house

But the rides are worth it IMHO.

Except for the fact that you have to compete for road space with these(this) guy(s) on the weekends….




Sunday….
