Village Car Show

3rd Annual Car Show in The Village - all locally owned.  

IMO best entrant by far was not a car ... it was the immaculately restored Vincent.   

Maybe not the fanciest car in the show, but (again IMO) the most lust-worthy 4 wheeled entrant was a gorgeous Buick Grand National ... Ooh how I always wanted one!

Dahon i7

Jane's old Dahon Ciao D5 was wrecked by a huge tree when "disaster struck in TN".  I've finally got around to replacing it with another Dahon Ciao ... this time an i7 from NYCEWheels.  Essentially the same folding bike, but with a few minor differences, most notable of which a Shimano 7 speed internal gear set instead of the Sturmey Archer 5 speed.


Getting checked out by Joanie and Dexter:

Rincon Parkway

Arrived this afternoon at Rincon Parkwaya linear campground that spans most of the Ventura shoreline between Faria Beach County Park and Hobson Beach County Park.

There were zero spaces available as I drove the strip south.  Looped around, drove back north. Still zero spaces. One last pass south and I thought I saw a class A starting up. Looped around again. He started to pull out as I approached. Swung across into his space shortly after he exited.  Ha!  Try that in a big rig!

There were loads of RVs hanging around at both ends of the strip, obviously waiting for spaces so I was really lucky to get in. Glad of the short drives today and tomorrow so I'm pleased I found a space.

Heading Back South

Time to leave Tiff's, bid the parrot adieu, and head back south:

Stopping at Pismo Beach North Beach Campground for a couple of nights:
