A slow, flat ride on the peninsula

I took a short ride from Manila to the U.S. Coast Guard station and back this morning.

I stopped at the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum and admired this life boat. It's huge.

Oh buoy!

Further down the peninsula I could see that the coasties were up to something. Here's one boat.

And another.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's boat was also involved.

I stopped and watched remote control model planes at the Samoa International Airport.

My bike is a sweet ride. It's not a light bike, nor is it a fast bike. It's a sturdy touring bike. I'm very pleased with its performance.



This song was going through my head during the ride, and after.
