|Getting the Sea Eagle kayak ready.|
|Final touches before launching.|
|Jeanette and I get to take our first trip in the new boat.|
|After swamping the kayak with Jeanette in it, we took it out for a true test run. It passed with flying colours.|
|Diane replaced me at the helm and the girls enjoyed a good paddle on the Colorado River tributary.|
|Hector and I took it out for a strong paddle.|
|This is very good activity on days like this.|
|It's important to stay hydrated too.|
|This was yesterday (Saturday) when we saddled up along with six other motorcyclists for our long desert ride on famous Route 66 to 29 Palms.|
|With six motorcycles and 8 riders, it made for a nice day of riding camaraderie.|
Our riding group included one Washingtonian from Bellingham; one rider from St. Louis, Missouri, a couple from Reno, Nevada, our rice farmer friend from Northern California, a passenger from Salem, Oregon and Jeanette and I from Langley, BC.
|Taken in Amboy, CA. on Route 66, this typifies the way it used to be on this famous route years back.|
|We took a much needed rest after a hard 90 mile run.|
|Pulling in to 29 Palms - our lunch place on this ride.|
|Gearing to head back to Needles, CA.|
|Jeanette is standing in front of the restaurant....and ready for the ride back.|
|Highway 95 north has been resurfaced and it's a treat to ride on once again. It was in poor condition for many years.|
|Another brief break before completing the final 49 miles.|
|The final stretch.....|
Little more need be said. Thanks for stopping by.
