Spent he day on the coast

Picked my baby up from BMC in San Francisco today. Finally had the oil line recall done. I had it scheduled earlier in the year but surgery messed that up. Anyway, we drove around San Francisco, Golden Gate park, the Presidio, then went up over the Golden Gate bridge, up to highway 1, and up the coast to Bodega Bay. We had a blast on the twisties and enjoyed the views. Sorry, no pics. Drove back through Napa Valley wine country to end a wonderful day. We didn't get north into the major twisties of highway 1, but hey, that leaves us another trip down the road. A nice relaxing day!

Oh, I did have a cop spot me and whip his car around to tailgate me. You could see the "I want this guy" in his eyes. After tailgating me for about 5 miles he finally turned off with disgust on his face. He knew I wasn't going to give him the opportunity after I slowed to 25 going into a school zone. You could actually see how pissed he was that he couldn't get me! We laughed for a bit after he didn't pull me over for something bogus.

One of my favorite sections of road in the world is the one between the tiny towns of Marshall and Tomales on Rt 1, just before you get to Bodega Bay. Hopefully, weekday traffic was light and the road was nice and dry in the afternoon. I often found my way out there after work, just to drive up and back on that section. What a joy--glad you had fun!
