Oh well! So much for me staying on top of the blogging. My gusto for knocking out these posts has diminished to the point of avoiding my own site. It's a reminder of my lack of action.
Let's see if we can correct that! Just a summary of what's been going on lately. I haven't been riding much, even though the weather has been beautiful around here. I did change Bonnie's oil yesterday. She was ~280 miles over her 5000 suggested change interval. My friend Tuyen sold his Honda VFR to a guy at his work. He's not getting out of motorcycling though, I think he just wants a change of pace. We spent last weekend hitting all the local shops, checking out new bikes. I'll be sure to post when he picks his next ride. I've found out that the Progressive International Motorcycle Show is coming to Phoenix in January. I'm excited to go as I've not had the pleasure of visiting one yet. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures.
So now that you're up to speed lets finish off our Santa Cruz trip that Kiri and I took at the end of July. The day before we had arrived at the Costanoa Lodge, about 30 minutes north of Santa Cruz. We slept in, the next morning, and had breakfast at the local lodge/restaurant before hiking across Highway 1 to explore the beach at Ano Nuevo State Park.
Stacks if you find yourself in the area. Just make sure you show up early to get your name on the list. This place is hoppin'!
farmers market. This was our second time attending and we always have a blast. So after breakfast we wandered up and down the street a bit.
Hakone Japanese Gardens west of town. We're big fans of the Portland Japanese Gardens, so we wanted to experience the San Jose version.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fight skills. She just rolled her eyes and walked away.
