On Saturday morning we gathered for some friendly chat and hot coffee before heading out together on one of our favorite runs. We had about 20 cars, 30 members and guests to enjoy the sights as we zigged-zagged through the Santa Cruz foothills to the coast at Moss Landing and eventually back over the mountain as the fun continued. The weather could not have been better, crisp air and sunny skies make for a great top down ride.
Thanks to Walt for orchestrating and leading us on a great trip. Walt found a very nice, scenic route via Bear Creek Road.
Phil’s Fish Market did not disappoint and was as delicious as always. Parking is always a challenge at Phil’s as it’s popularity on a sunny, brisk day was very evident. The line to get in was out into the parking lot. From Phil’s we cruised to Castroville to the Farmer’s Market for fresh artichokes and other fresh veggies & fruits. We took advantage of an almost empty parking lot, line up the Miatas for a great photo opportunity.
We managed to turn left back onto the highway and drove some wonderful twisty, turning roads to Gzditch Farms for some pie, ala mode, coffee and juice. There we saw another car club, the Thunderbirds! Another great photo opportunity.
Filled to the brim with pie, coffee & juice we drove on to Uvas Reservoir to check out the height of the water. The Miata drivers lined up their cars again and the cameras came out again. Now there is some great aerial footage and a couple of videos from our drive on the website. You’ve got to check them out! We have some very talented videographers in the group.
