    Grandson just able to reach the pedals, but can't quite put his feet down. Today we learned the pedal mount and dismount. We aren't hitting the big streets yet, but the 'hood has sights worth stopping for! IMG_1265.JPG

    The wedge is the farthest south you can go on the Balboa Peninsula; and the waves were pretty big today.

    I met Marty there and we rode to Woody’s in Sunset Beach for lunch.

    Spent the last couple of days servicing and cleaning on this old Schwinn. Got it back together today and decided to take a break by riding it to the local Casey's for an iced tea. DSCN3174.JPG DSCN3175.JPG DSCN3177.JPG

    Here's a few more shots from Woody's.
    Definitely, one of my favorite pit stops while out on a ride.

    The camera was having a hard time focusing on this Jasmine because of the aroma waves coming off of them.

    I just finished the 1927 Rollfast Camelback project on Tuesday, so I took it out for a ride today. The bike seemed to say “Thanks for the ride - It’s been decades since the wind was in my face”. JimRoy
