Bucket List Ride

Just got back from a 450 mile two day ride. Did 373 miles on day one. Left Fresno at 0630 and other than a stop in Seaside for lunch and the brief visit to Alice's, I was on the bike the whole time, finally rendezvousing with my daughter and son in law in Felton at around 1700. Yes I was tired.

I had always wanted to go up highway 9 out of Santa Cruz to Alice's Restaurant. Alice's has long been an iconic Mecca for Bay Area Bikers. Highway 9 is stunningly beautiful. Nestled up in the Redwood Forest of the California Coast range mountains just south of San Francisco Bay.

After wandering thru Alice's I headed S/W down La Honda road to highway one on the coast. It's about 30 minutes of fantastic S turns and forest beauty. Probably the high light of the trip.

So another bucket list box has been checked. Wonder what happens when all the boxes get checked?????? Lol.

Pics along Carmel Valley Road.







Great lunch spot in Seaside (First town North of Monterey) Casual dining. The main restaurant, The Fish Wife, is around the corner. They really know how to do fish right.





Found some shade for the Green Momba while the pilot fills his tank.



Almost to Alice's. View of the Bay looking north.



Several pics of Alice's.












Birds of a feather. Met this gentleman who was riding with his son. He belongs to the Ducati Scrambler parked next to my V. Real nice guy and a Captain for Alaska Airlines. Small world as we talked jets and bikes.



Some local racer pics. This is circa late 60's and early 70's. This featured Jim Rice a very fast dude back in the day.



Shots along highway one near Half Moon Bay. For you surfer types ( I used to surf, too old and stiff these days) Half Moon Bay is the location of the Famous Mavericks giant surf break. Definitely not for the faint of heart.





Back at camp after a very long day. After a cold Corona, Shawn grilled up some steak. Beautiful trailer park in Felton right along a creek.







Box checked...Life is good.

The End.
