Photos of a Southern California Day

Saturday Afternoon Ride Escondido to Seal Beach, CA It has been a long time since I went on a decent bike ride, so I was more than due for today’s ride. My friend Phil wanted to come along, but he only wanted to do a short ride to Cook’s Corner, about 50 miles from here. I rode my Limited and he was on his Glide. As soon as we got off the freeway he suggested we go to Stone Brewery instead. I was not real happy the last time we went there, but since it was 50 miles further I …

Twenty some odd years ago I was riding out to Hermosa Beach to meet my then wife at our favorite watering hole for lunch. Soon after being seated, this guy I recognized vaguely came up to talk. In a nutshell, he had a Harley-Davidson Sportster and wanted to know where I went to have work done on my bike. I told him I did all my own work. He told us a story of woe, having brought his bike into a local shop that was notorious for doing crappy work. To make a long story short, I gave him my …

Memories and no regrets

Brought the Limited in for its 1,000 mile service. Turns out this was also the first day on the showroom floor for the bike I traded in. They chromed the front end and cleaned her up real nice. She looked good but I am happy with my decision. Day 153 of my picture a day.

Sunday ride to Stone Brewing Company

Ride to Stone Brewing Company [adrotate group=”6″] The Family That Plays Together Stays Together It seems like it has been a long time since I did a Sunday ride, so yesterday, I did something about it. My buddy, Phil, and I rode down to my son’s house and met up for a ride down to Escondido to the Stone Brewing Company. It was a great ride and Stone Brewing Company provides some great beer. Their food is not bad either. Someday I will have to take Tanya there. Enjoy the photos. [adrotate group=”1″]

I have got the fever

Again. The last time I caught this fever it took a month to do anything about it. This morning, while taking Buddy for his morning stroll I discovered that a new bike shop opened up a couple blocks away from me. They sell used bikes, but that may just work for my scenario. Today’s Project 365 photo is of the possible new home for one of my bikes.

Riverside National Cemetery

The VA National Cemetery in Riverside, CA [adrotate group=”6″] Honoring the Military Service of Our Nation’s Veterans Since I was out in the Riverside area yesterday I decided to stop by and visit my mother’s final resting place. It is a very nice cemetery that includes a Medal of Honor Memorial, Prisoner of War/Missing in Action Memorial and the “Veterans Memorial” tribute to fallen soldiers. It is worth a visit if ever in the area. Enjoy the photos. [adrotate group=”1″]

Sights from the Los Angeles Zoo

Sights from the Los Angeles Zoo [adrotate group=”6″] Photos From Our Outing To the LA Zoo Believe it or not, but this morning I was inspired by a friend’s Facebook update. He mentioned that if the weather was right he might go to the zoo. I thought that sounded like an excellent idea, and our weather is always zoo worthy. Tanya and I got on the Glide and headed to the LA Zoo. It gave me a great opportunity to play with the new Sigma lens as well. [adrotate group=”1″]
