Chapter ride to Ventura Harbor
Flags flying at Pepperdine University in Remembrance of victims of 9-11
We came to the Pepperdine University Campus and the huge display of flags.
We ate lunch in the same Seafood Market from the Week Day Riders trip up here about 2 months ago. I told several of the group about the big fish and chips order you get and wound up with 8 of us heading over there. I still ordered the same salad. John R. and I had a big scoop of really good and cold ice cream with chocolate sauce or hot fudge in his case, and we find out it's Thrifty Ice Cream. We head back but it is a bit colder than expected so I add a fleece jacket. It warmed up once we were heading toward Moorpark and at the first stop, time to take most of it off.
One really positive note, Tail Gunner Ed Palaoro riding behind me mentioned that I was doing a much better job of maintaining spacing and lane control. I really felt I had been doing better and this was a welcome bit of confirmation.
This is as close to the route we took as I can recall, it was a different route leaving the harbor than I was familiar with...Lot's more photos (185 of them), in web album, or just watch the slide show.
