Coffeeneuring #4 Happy Birthday to me!

How lucky for me that my birthday always seems to fall during Coffeeneuring. That usually means I get a nice ride somewhere fun. Well this year didn’t disappoint…..we drove north to Santa Cruz and had a meetup with The Goddess herself.

Janet and The Goddess ready to roll.
Jack too!!

As you can see it was a bright clear day….well now. When we left Seaside it was fog to the ground.

Leaving the parking lot we found this guy ….. he seems sad to have lost his buddy 😢

We soldiered on and we’re soon in the Wilder Ranch homestead. You may recall this was the scene of my first (and worst) fall a few months ago. There will be NO falling today!

Past the big barn.
We all enjoyed the old farming equipment.
You must “walk” your bikes through here….that encourages you to stop and have a look.
Enjoying the beautiful day!!

Suffers at Steamer Lane.
With such a pace we needed our Coffeeneuring break and found a great spot. It seemed to be a local “kinder” park. Cute little ones everywhere made for a fun break. Well these guys are fun too!
Coffee and a tasty Watermelon Cake 🎂
The Goddess wanted to try some off road riding!! Wow what an adventure!!
I even found some “public art”!
Yea… falling!!
Except for Bessie on the way there and during setup….I’m beginning to think it’s her issue not mine!

Another year spent on my bike! I’m looking forward to 2019!

    Nice to to see that you and Kathleen could “do coffee” together. Nice day for a ride, too.

    I didn’t know it was Janet’s birthday until we met up. I felt so honored that she wanted to spend part of her day coffeeneuring. Always fun to get together with that pair.

    Happy Birthday… a bit late! It looks like a beautiful day with fun companions. Can’t ask for much more than that. Verne and Kermit hope the teddy finds his owners or a happy new home!
