    Alina looks exactly like an artist SHOULD look. Very bohemian. Around here, Allina (with two L’s) is associated with a huge conglomerate of clinics and hospitals. I’d rather be associated with a big, colorful mural.

    Just curious, did you make that short 5,530 mile side trip to Paris?

      Yes, I was impressed by bohemian Alina. My ace support crew might believe I was a little TOO impressed by her. 😉

      As to the 5530 mile side trip to Paris, I tried to do it, but the road turned out to be another dead end. Darn it.

    Never seen a bike lock on a ghost bike before. Loved the mural.

    Pretty neat what can be found close to home, there are still a few spots around here that remain unexplored.

      I was surprised by what I found. A very rural neighborhood of “ranchettes” and “farmettes” tucked between city limits, the Laguna de Santa Rosa (where the lanes end abruptly), and Highway 101 (ditto). A mix of tumbling down shacks and fancy new homes, but no cookie-cutter subdivisions. It seems remote and isolated, but it’s just a few miles from civilization including Walmart and the big casino. More exploration in order.

    Low temps and a bit of rain must be very welcome in your part of the world. Great picture of Alina and the mural, a good idea to cycle there. Cycling with a destination is much more interesting than just cycling around, I find.

    What a fabulous mural! And nice to have a bit of adventure and see some new things close to home. And always better a rain cloud overhead than a grassfire upwind.
