I have not had the energy, time and inclination to post in the last couple days, for which I apologize. I will try to rectify that with this post. When last we spoke, we were in Fortuna CA. getting ready to head south. Forthwith....we continue.
Every single time...I am in awe. How, I mean seriously!
I had to turn the camera end on to even get the flavor of the height.
Here we are. Happy!
Further down 101.
How's this for an aloe?
At a rest stop along the way.
We stopped just before the Golden Gate Bridge to pay the $21 toll. Sheesh!!!
I snapped this picture just before a National Park policeman came and yelled at me for stopping beside the freeway.
We ended up in Portola Valley for dinner. We chose the Lobster Shack.
They had a variety of floats on the wall. Each one is a different color so "Lobstah Fishamen" can distinguish which traps are theirs.
I ordered Seafood "Chowdah."
And Fried Oysters.
And Coconut Prawns.
Here SccoterChick enjoys her Lobster Mac.
Skipping to the next day we stop again to eat. Looking out the window gives a clue to our location, but a bare clue. Here's a hint. we're in San Luis Obispo.
Skip to much later. It's now about 10pm and we're chilling with our daughter.
Here's Scooterchick the next day, wearing my hat at the mall.
I parked in this parkade. Does it look different? That's because there are 4 lanes of traffic overhead on the Marina Fwy.
This is the Westfield Mall.
This is a picture of ScooterChick and Tracey in front of a Banana Plant.
We went to Venice Beach for dinner.
Parking was just plain weird. we finally found a spot for $7.
the restaurant we chose was James Beach. Here 2 beauties peruse the menu choices. There are so many excellent things to choose from.
It was a nice restaurant with excellent service.
They had a lovely courtyard, but it was cool and breezy, so we opted to dine in rather than al fresco.
This was the view through the window.....bamboo.
Tracey had a Tuna Sashimi Tower.
Patsy had a Chicken Cobb Salad.
I had a Crab and Avocado Salad. I know that you are thinking, how very California. Well you would be right.
skipping ahead to today, we stopped at a rest stop just inside Arizona. Here is a flowering bush of some description.
Another flowering bush. Hmmm.
ScooterChick is checking the straps on the scooters.
These are some mountains in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge south of I-10 west of Quartzsite AZ.
Another picture from a different viewpoint.
Relaxing now in a Drury Inn in Happy Valley. Highly recommended. We'll probably stay in another tomorrow in Las Cruces. Goodnight.
