Back from Vacation and Tatting Again

I’m still here. I know it’s been weeks since I last posted anything but, what can I say, it’s been a busy couple of months around here.

My husband and I had two four-day vacations. The first was a long weekend in Williams, Arizona, with a visit to the Grand Canyon. This was a well-planned motorcycle trip with lots of scenic roads and a little sightseeing along the way. Unfortunately, the weather turned bad the day we left San Diego. It rained and snowed in the mountains and the roads were quite treacherous.

We had a group of almost 20 motorcycles when we left San Diego and had three motorcycles tip over on the icy roads. Everyone was able to get back up and keep riding but the first day was non-stop rain, sleet, and snow for 12-1/2 hours - all the way to Williams, Arizona.

Friday was spent at the Grand Canyon; another cold and wet day but the Grand Canyon is awesome and we all enjoyed seeing it. Saturday was absolutely gorgeous – the perfect day for riding. We left Williams early that day and headed south through Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona, Jerome, and stopped in Wickenburg.

On the way back to San Diego on Sunday we stopped at Lutes Casino in Yuma – a fun and interesting restaurant featuring potato tacos. Just to give you a better idea of the weather we encountered during these four days; the lowest temperature on Thursday was 28 degrees and the highest temperature through the desert on Sunday was 98 degrees!

Our second long weekend involved flying up to Reno for some very important training. My husband and I both ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles and we’re also officers in our local motorcycle chapter. Every year Harley-Davidson puts on four training seminars in the United States for officers of local chapters and we were lucky enough to be able to go to the West Coast seminar in Reno. There were 700 bikers there from all over the United States and we shared stories about our local chapters and learned a lot from each other about making our own chapters more inviting and more fun. It was a very busy month for us but a lot of fun.

Well, enough about our weekend adventures. More about tatting in my next post.
