we stopped at the Corte Madera Town Center for the Wednesday Farmers Market.  i was a bit skeptical at first, but having the Farmers Market in the outdoor mall worked well!

silly boy with a frisbee on his head!


here’s the reason i drove all day…………..Sol!  my Godson.

i got to Larkspur around 9:30p, and Sol was still awake and waiting for me to arrive.

we had a chance to play a little indoor frisbee before he went to bed.

totally worth the drive, the wind, the nap, the gas, the effort.

so i wanted to have an adventure with Sandy……….im getting one for sure.

the wind!

so strong through the central valley.

do you see those windmills in the photo?

today i learned that driving Sandy while seeing fields of windmill out the window is not the best mix.

i don’t think i passed one car today, but i did have a couple 100 vehicles pass me.

i was in the slow lane all the way.

average speeds were 35 to 55 mph.

headwind kicked my butt.

ive never driven Sandy in so much wind before.

now i know.

when i get back i’ll check with Russell at Old Speed to see if there is anything i can do to help with the task of being blown around in the wind.  tighten up the steering?  drop Sandy another inch?  i dunno…
