Birthday Road Trip - April 18, 2008

Another birthday, another reason to get out of town! Figured I’d combine a birthday trip down the coast with a fact finding mission for a 2-wheel ride I'll be leading next month. So I rented one of these:

And I packed up one of these:

We were shadowed by one of these:

And we headed down the coast for a few views of this:

I’ve driven down Hwy 1 countless times and never seen the waterfall at Julia Pfeiffer State Park so decided to remedy that. I couldn’t believe how close it was to the road and how easy it is to miss!

Lucia, another lovely little town that I usually end up just riding through… decided to stop and enjoy the views.

After much ado, we arrived in Cambria and unloaded and relaxed around the pool… well, I did while Shannon did her Toyota impression.

After dinner with friends and night’s rest, we journeyed back toward home the long way so I could check out some of the roads for the south coast tour. There are some real gems! 

Lockwood-San Lucas Rd. was a nice surprise – great pavement, nice gentle sweepers, and rolling green hills… sure beats the freeway!
Image

It was quite cold the whole weekend and right after this, I gave in and put the top up to temp and high winds. We jetted home via 101. I can’t wait to get back on these roads next month on two-wheels!!

FIN
