Central Coast Has Snow Too……….

I wasn’t going to write up this ride, which is my New Normal. About 19mi from home to Asilomar and back. I love the ride most of the time. I get a few hills and a lot of beautiful views…… I was on my way back home after Asilomar I saw the views of the mountain tops dusted in snow. It was so beautiful I just had to share. Greg, Rich and Suzanne  I know this is nothing but we only get this every year or two!

Can you see the snow tops? It’s about the end of the aloe Vera blooming season. I think some of the droop maybe the cold.
This was right after two hailstorms…..
I headed out just after.
I love to take this alley on the way home….I just recently discovered it’s name. Mermaid Way.
All the homes have Mermaids on them it’s something new as I’ve been riding it for years and never noticed.
Also has some interesting lighting…..
So..this was at Pt Lobos on Monday. Still some interesting shadows happening 😊
Another sign of weather….spring flowers by the bike shed….I need to find a picture of Uptown. She’s locked up inside along with Bessie and all the others.

Well it seems that I’m missing the appropriate bike photo……. next time.

Janet here of Jack and Janet in Seaside, CA. We just love to ride our bikes and share and read stories from other such afflicted souls.

    Nice photos! The Bay Area had significant (for us) snowfall above roughly 1000 feet on Monday night. Up to a couple of inches at the highest elevations around the Bay. Our northern comrades are probably laughing at our dusting, but we only get that much snow about once per decade. Our house is at about 380 feet, so no snow in our yard. I didn’t get out Tuesday, but today (Wednesday), Jeff and I hiked up into the remaining snow on Bald Mountain in Sugarloaf State Park, just a few miles away. I might pedal up Bald Mountain tomorrow to see if there’s still snow for a Challenge photo.

    I agree with Emily, that picture of the snow-capped mountains and the aloe vera is great. I have never seen aloe veras in bloom before–picture or otherwise. I have seen snow though.

    Agree with Em and Greg — that is a calendar quality photo!
    Alleys are fascinating, never know what may be there, and they give a very different perspective than that seen from the streets. There is an alley or two here where seeing Alley Oop wouldnt be too far fetched.
    Not sure mermaids are common here, but rumor has it Lake Michigan might have some.
    Socked in with fog here — you get the snow, we get the fog, go figure!

    I don’t think I have ever seen aloe Vera in bloom either, or mermaids an alley actually. Nice photos. I continue to do some snow walks here in the Seattle area ;’-0.
