Here's me, getting the low-down. I had hoped to ride pillion, but they wanted Hunter to do his run solo first. I could have gone with him the second time around, but we decided not to bother with it.
I felt like a proud mom at her kid's sports event, snapping away with my big 'ole camera. But I've learned that if I get self-conscious and don't take photos, I'm kicking myself at the end of the day. And I definitely wanted photos of this occasion!
Hunter did a trial-run in the parking lot, and then took a touring model out on the road.
This photo demonstrates how ingrained motorcycle tendencies become. He's trying to make the Spyder, which is not a motorcyle, lean in the turn. As you can see, Hunter is the only object actually leaning.
And, because I took them so gosh darn it, I'm gonna use them:
When all was said and done, we got back onto the Wee and rode into the sunset. Okay, so we rode into the sun because it was the middle of the day...but my point is that we went home with our Wee. Not that we were actually considering purchasing a Spyder, but we were definitely curious. And now Hunter is even more convinced that he loves his two-wheelers.
Since the day was far from over, we decided to head up the coast. We ended up in Carlsbad, and visited some beautiful beaches. It was a bit cool and rather windy, so I was content to watch the waves.
In other news, we spent last weekend at the harbor. We toured several ships and submarines, and met up with a fellow Shutterfly Guru for dinner! Lisa happened to be in town for a few days, so we met up for dinner and had a great time. She was with a fun group of friends, and we enjoyed getting to know them.
I love sailboats; they look so beautiful on the water.
We toured the submarine on the left.
Inside the submarine. Talk about claustrophobia...I don't know how those guys do it. After 20 minutes, I was ready to get the heck outta there.
One of the boats we toured. We also toured the boat that was on the movie Master and Commander. Which I've never seen.
The Coronado bridge. We crossed this on the bike, in the dark. It was pretty awesome.
And, I guess that's it for now! Gotta get back to enjoying my weekend. :)
