The BF and I joined a Donny ride to Capitola, starting from Lexington Dam by the boat launch. The route included Old Santa Cruz Highway, Mt. Bache, San Jose-Soquel (one of my favorite descents), into Capitola and then onwards to climb Mtn. Charlie before returning back. We stopped at a park on San Jose Soquel, and a little girl came up to me and told me I was pretty. Get out of town! How sweet.
The BF in downtown Capitola. We shared a salami cheese baguette at Gayle's Bakery (great food but much too crowded and overwhelming). I'd share our conversations but let's just say the dialogue was a bit naughty even by my standards, or at least for this blog entry.
The BF says, what about me! Well Birthday Boy, I find you quite steamy and delicious. Moving right along ... what an outing. I was doing okay (and of course The BF was blasting away) until I hit Mtn. Charlie towards the end. Pooped me out big time. Lost a lot of time on that climb. Plus I got a wee bit lost. Great gang as usual, pretty scenery and a swell time for all.
