Rides to Collect ABC Letters, March, 2016
I'm collecting points for my 2016 HOG ABC's
Each new calendar year, I start over with a blank slate.
I try as early in the year as weather allows to begin with the local points.

It has been a while since I rode over to the coast.
So Wednesday, March 16th I headed for Half Moon Bay

First stop was at the post office
In part, this was just for nostalgis,
I have used this as an ABC stop
several times in the past

Next stop was at the
Half Moon Bay Old Jail
Then a little up the coast to
the El Granada Post Office
"E" cities are not all that common

Then down the coast to Pescadero
First stop was the
Pescadero Post Office
Hmm, seems to be a trend here... 
A passer-by was nice enough
to take my photo

In front of the post office was a beautiful stand
of  California Poppies in full bloom

The Country Bakery in Pescadero
makes a wonderful
artichoke, garlic, herb bread that I like
and terrific sandwiches.
I recommend their "godfather"

Of course I cannot visit Pescadero without stopping at the Harley Farms Goat Dairy
The new kids are about three weeks old and had recently been de-horned
The day was beautiful and the
water was blue
Wild flowers were putting on a show

Saturday, March 19th, the weather is again great, mid 60's
So more letters are out there for me to achieve 

I headed up 880 to Fremont for an "F"
As always, 880 is a nightmare
I had previously visited Foster City
but was unsatisfied with the photo

Next stop was the
Alameda County Courthouse
Headed over to Newark

Then to Union City
In the adjacent park, they were having
a farmers market

Finally, I rode through Castro Valley
to pick up Dublin for my "D" 

On the way home I stopped
in Pleasanton and had a sandwich
