Journeyed out Greenfield to the far side of El Cajohn, turned around at 9.5 miles, drank some water, and headed back, going down Main through the heart of the city, as it were.
Saw something shiny in the bike lane, a tool!! A socket!! I double backed through a 99¢ Store parking lot. A socket, a socket, I need another socket like I need...well, of course it wasn't a socket at all. I was FAKED OUT by a broken-off locking lug nut. And not for the first time, either!
Took a side-trip past a house I used to rent, for old-times sake. I wonder if it flooded for THEM in the recent rains. Saw a jacked-up car on possibly a four-wheel drive mechanism. Words fail me, and I didn't take a picture.
Headed back up through the Grossmont, decided to detour through the Harry Griffen.
A sign advertised the Spring Harp Fest. I thought, hey, that would be cool, a bunch of harps! I would have taken a picture of a harp, but I didn't see any. (On returning home and searching the intarwebs, I find it is a HARMONICA fest. Fest, indeed!!)
I DID see the Easter Bunny had been laying eggs in the grass.

(Certain maps show this as "Grassmont Reservoir", which I find funny!)
I saw one cheerfull little tyke with his mom and a basket in hand, approaching the park as I left.
Going down Water to Amaya I saw this interesting truck.
What make and model is, do you suppose? It looks like it may have been a bread van at one time.
I was cruising quite nicely down the Parkway when I spotted another license plate. Not one to waste ANOTHER photo op, I turned around (Discovered I had had a tailwind, and decidedly did NOT, now!), went up the frontage road, and approached the location again.
(DISCLAIMER: I propped it up for the photo)
FAKED OUT! I was faked out for the second time today!
21.2 miles in 1 hour 43 minutes 58 seconds.
Odometer at end of ride: 6,935 miles (In case I erase THIS ONE changing to (from?) Daylight Saving Time.)
