The Coast is Clear

 Last night we found ourselves at the Comfort Inn in merry Marina.  Today, we found ourselves in Castroville on our way to Pt. Lobos State Park to celebrate club members' birthdays, including mine!

Borrowing from George Thorogood:
On the day I was born 
The nurses all gathered 'round 
And they gazed in wide wonder 
At the joy they had found 
The head nurse spoke up and said:
"Watch out for this little tyke
When she grows up
She's gonna be Bad on the Bike"

What a spectacular day!  The weather was perfect.  Minh brought birthday goodies for everyone.  

 At our last stop, we met a woman.  I told her it was my birthday and I was now a 49er. To which she replied that she was 96!  This woman was absolutely remarkable.   When we grow up, we all want to be like her.  

Ah, food porn at the Paris Bakery in Monterey.  Thank you Miss P for making this the best birthday of my life save for the time my mom baked me a cake in the shape of a cat.  Yesterday at work, a co-worker gave me a herb plant -- mint.  All these treats.  I feel special.  Thank you.  And thank you club members for a memorable day.

Just the Stats:

Happy Birthday, Christine. Looks like you guys had a beautiful day. I had a fun roll around Skyline with Pat and Chuck and then returned home to sleep for 3 hours. I'm glad I didn't have to drive home at that point!
