July 25th Ride to Lake Piru


View into Lake Piru: Pretty nice! Too bad we didn't stop for a picture!


Crew members all met at Somis Market for breakfast and coffee before heading out.


We had scrum-diddly-umptious breakfast burritos and coffee here.


The burritos were delicious. Just don't buy their chicken salad sandwiches!


The Crew's very own Chief Warrant Officer 4 performed a safety check on our scoots.


It was too hot to stop short of the entrance for a picnic as planned.


So we entered the park at a whopping $10/head just for a little shade and rest.


But we got to visit a while and use the head, so it was kinda worth it.
Kelly covered me since I blew most of my money on Somis Market
breakfast and a gross chicken salad sandwich that not even the birds would eat!
It was a very long journey back, and we got somewhat separated towards the end
of our ride, but we all had a safe and very fun ride.
