The motel owner told us this morning that the gentleman who fell down the stairs was being held in hospital in Santa Barbara with several broken ribs and contusions. They are keeping him due to concerns about some prior medical conditions but expect he will be OK.
Nite Lite and Linda's son Brian arrived with his girlfriend Amber. Now, everyone is here. Everyone who is coming, that is. Wish the rest of you were here, too.
The mornings are cool here in Solvang and we waited for the marine layer clouds to burn off before setting out on our ride for the day. Leaving about 10:00 AM, the first stop was Buellton for fuel where Sherm's Gasbuddy app had found some stations priced at under $4.00 per gallon. On the way, the lid of sandy's Butler mug blew off and we waited while Sherm went back to get it.
From Buellton, we rode back through Solvang and went north on Alamo Pintado Drive to the Quicksilver Ranch, home of the miniature horses. This is another one of our regular stops in this area.
