Our Last Night on the Road!

Not much to report for yesterday - Bill drove and drove and drove. We left Slidell, Louisiana and stopped for the night in Lake City, FL. I had wanted to stop at Florida Caverns State Park but the tickets for the tour of the caverns are first come, first served and as we neared I called and we [...]

It Was a Creole Soap Opera!

We left our room and headed out - it was not a good night's sleep. The AC went on and off all night and there was lots of noise from cars and voices, coming and going. We headed for the Laura Plantation in Vacherie, Louisiana for a tour. First, a stop at King's Truck Stop for a good Southern [...]

Adios Alamo

We woke up and packed up and put our things in the car in the parking garage, then walked to The Alamo. We hadn't made reservations so we would have to wait until later in the day to enter the building, but anyone can tour the grounds any time so we did that. It was much bigger than we thought! [...]

Walking Around San Antonio!

We left San Angelo this morning and headed to San Antonio. Rolling green hills surrounded us most of the trip - farms, pastures, and trees. Very different than southern Texas we saw driving west!

Covering Some Miles!

Happy 90th Birthday, Mom! I'm sorry I'm not with her, but we did celebrate in June with the whole family. Fortunately, brother Carl and Nikki are with her to help her celebrate today with a lobster dinner! Her favorite.

Learning About New Mexico

We left the hotel and stopped at McDonald's for breakfast and were on our way. Less than an hour later we were in Santa Fe, so we found our hotel and then headed to Jiffy Lube to get the oil changed - yes, it has been 5000 miles as of today! The oil change was jiffy, so we went to the Santa Fe [...]

Biking the Strand

11 July 2021 | Hermosa Beach, CA
Mary Yeomans | 75 degrees, partly cloudy
After breakfast Bill and I spent some time with maps this morning choosing places to visit in the next few weeks. Our list grows but who knows just where we will end up?
John loaded bikes on his car and parked at the yacht club where they are members. From there we rode on The Strand for five miles through Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. This is a cement bike path that is relatively flat and runs right along the beach. Lots to watch and see. We passed Jimmy Kimmel's house and the house from Beverly Hills 90210. The houses are built right up against the biking path so folks sit on their porches and watch the show. There were hundreds of volleyball courts set up on the beaches, and a tournament was going on which must happen often there.
After five miles we took a break and I was pooped. On the way back we stopped at The Lighthouse on Hermosa Beach Pier( a famous jazz spot) and had lunch and beers. That was a great people-watching place! We rode back to the car and packed up and headed home.
We spent some time relaxing (Bill napped) and then wine time began followed by a delicious steak dinner. Some chocolate and macaroons served as dessert and then we went for a walk around the neighborhood. John stopped to compliment a young man on the improvements made to the gardens at his home. Turns out his mother does most of the work but she doesn't live there, so he called her and she was thrilled that someone noticed her work. He gave me an agave plant in a pot to take back to Florida! So nice!
Back to the house and then to bed. Big day tomorrow - leaving here and heading to La Quinta to visit college friends!
