After walking around the country (it is really not that big), we hit the beach. It was the nicest beach we visited on our cruise. The water was almost warm there.

Like I said before, I spent two hours down loading some pictures in a bar in Monaco when I could have been sharing my time with Kathe on the beach. I thought what an idiot I am. I lost out on some special time in Monaco with my lady when I could have beeplaying the cold water with her. But I feel complelled to update my blog too.
But I kept the computer off the rest of teh cruise after that
I did find a few minutes to play in the water and take some nice pictures there.

No......it's not the race. It's just a normal commute in downtown Monaco

Miss the good old time
Have fun in Europe and ride safe Mon Ami
Yes, went to Roses and just not the same as Tahiti.......yeah, I am spoiled!
Right now we are in a beach town about an hours south of Barcelona
Decent beach, but the water is COLD
And there are so many people. We had people lay their towels inches away from us and I don't like that. I like my space........even if they are topless.

Well, at least the ones I went to.
The pictures may look pretty but the water is cold, the sand is a bunch of little rocks and you have to buy a spot on the beach a lot of times. And forget about having a beach to yourself. On most beaches, there are more towels than sand showing on the beach. It is wall to wall people.
All this time, I have taken California's beaches for granted.
Sure the water is cold, but was have beautiful sand and big wide beautiful beaches.
California uber alles!!!!!


Come on Lalo! that is not fair, you have to give eurobeaches a second chance, this one is near my hometown (yeah the water is not as warm as in Southern California, but you wont find more than ten dudes aroound in a summer day).
Great to see that you are having big fun and hope to see you around again!

Yeah, the metal cup smells like metal but it is stronger than the lexan cups.
And I would never give up that cup for her. Fortunately, it doesn't take up too much space so I can keep both

I know there are some beautiful beaches in Europe.......I just haven't been to them yet. I have only been here for 3 weeks now. And I have just been to the touristy places.
I hear Greece is nice. And I am heading that way to the north part of Spain in the next few days. Maybe you can show me where it is and we can drink some cold Albarino there.

More pictures from Monaco.
I am glad I have something else to take pictures of besides my motorcycle. Before, if I couldn't use my self timer, I would just take a pic of my moto with the scenary. My moto is sexy, but not quite as much as Kathe
