down the coast

Met Viet in San Jose for Vietnamese food
hoped to see Bare Knuckle pizza in action, but I did see the oven
Tea with Cornelia in San Jose-met her last year in Anacortes

skated the newly improved DERBY park

super smooth=super fun

staff of life makes their own gf vegan donuts!
Emmanuel Guzman came in while I was at Bill's Wheels

part of BILL's extensive history lesson

popped over to CONSOLIDATED & said hello to Birdo & Leticia
Played a round at De Laveaga in the hills outside of SC

the 27th hole tee box has quite a view
rugged and windy coastline
driving the coast is always an adventure - historic Bixby Bridge

looking back on Bixby - this was my perch for the sunset
the sun goes behind the clouds

15 minutes later the colors come out

1-3am - had an extraordinary soak under the stars - loads of shooting stars
so good to be back in shorts & flip flops - isla vista food coop

picked up BONES documentary's and went by Church of Skatan

attention to detail on the outflow.
another 9 miles of winding dirt roads
