With so much to write about...and with so many photos to share, this will have to be a two part blog.
Part 1 covers our first two days on the road. Part 2 will cover the last two days
and it will follow in the days ahead.
|Our first day - gathered at the Harley Davidson motorcycle shop in Yuma, AZ, prior to departure.|
L-R: Jeanette and me, Roger and Lorraine, Fritz and Bonnie, Trena and Lucky.
|Trena & Jeanette trying to walk in the fine, fine sand in the Imperial Dunes area of the California/Arizona border.|
|Trena, Lucky & Jeanette (I am taking the photo) riding out to Yuma, AZ (Sunday, March 13th) to meet up with Bonnie/Fritz and Lorraine/Roger.|
We discussed our ride over a nice dinner at a local Yuma restaurant. We agreed to meet up at our Yuma hotel for our Monday, March 14, 2016 departure.
|Westbound along the Mexican border (Highway 94 on the US side) - making our way towards San Diego.|
|Taking a break and adding some layers of clothing to ward off the wind, threatened rain and cooling mountain temperatures.|
|A short rest at this mountain village east from San Diego.|
|A favourite of ours, San Diego is a city Jeanette and I truly enjoy visiting.|
We arrived at our harbor-side motel by 3:30, Monday afternoon.
|Parked for the night.|
|A beautiful setting - enjoying the company of good friends.|
|One of the numerous photos taken in harbor-side, San Diego. It was here that we enjoyed diner looking over this lovely view with downtown San Diego in the background.|

|Happy hour was had overlooking the Pacific Ocean while enjoying beautiful 80 degree heat.|
|Me, Jeanette and Lucky are basking in the late afternoon sunshine, waiting for the others to gather for our walk to the restaurant.|
Before posting this blog, I edited over 400 photos. Jeanette was certainly busy while riding. And she did capture some truly good scenic pix.
Thanks for dropping by.
