Some more enjoyable than others.
South of Sacramento along the Delta.
Starting off the day with a big apple fritter, after breakfast paella, may not have been the best idea.
|Meeting up at Old Soul, the normal coffee meetup spot, before hitting the road.|
|Shorts and a light jacket (t-shirts later on) isn't too bad for late January riding conditions.|
|Arrived at Brannan Island and set up camp. Don chops up some of the wood bundles we picked up about 10 miles back.|
|Let the Paella begin. Meat first...|
|Remove meat, add onions and spices along with a can of fire roasted tomatoes and rice.|
|White wine and chicken broth added.|
|Add the meat back to the top and top with shrimp.|
|Finish up over the fire to get the soccrant on the bottom of the pan.|
|Add bacon and egg to the leftovers. Breakfast is served.|
|Rolling through Rio Vista for second breakfast. Two coffees and two big apple fritters for less than $5.|
|Ferry closed. Looks like we need to backtrack a bit to ride up the other side of the river.|
|Endless vineyards and nut farms along most of the route back.|
|Time to take off a layer. Notice the sailboat peeking up from behind the levee.|
|Getting chased by nasty looking dogs while admiring the herd. Mount Diablo seen through the fog in the background.|
|Made it to the other ferry crossing. 30 more miles of riding back to Sacramento.|
