|Newport Beach Area|
Work to me is, "thinking lofty thoughts". (Be careful not to step in the bullshit.) And I can think on the scooter.
My daughter, Emilie, volunteered to go with me to keep me out of mischief. Is she going because I told her that I was going to the Crab Cooker for lunch? Quite possibly.
There are five islands in Newport Beach, California: Balboa Island, Bay Island, Collins Island, Harbor Island, Linda Isle (too snobby to be called "Island") and Newport Island. I decided to lunch on the Islands and surrounding mainland of the Balboa Peninsula, Lido Isle (not an Island) and Corona del Mar --- with a dash back to handle the afternoon horsefeathers.
There are worse things to do than spend lunch on the islands when you're riding the Devil. Here is a video that I took from the cell phone while crossing Newport Harbor on the ferry, headed for lunch.
Stills from that event:

|The lady behind me is not a "local". You can tell by the girth of the woman.|
|Emilie took a pause for the cause to text somebody.|
Lunch at the Crab Cooker:
|It's across the street from the Newport Pier. A mile down the road there is|
another pier, The Balboa Pier (across from the Ferry).
|Emilie waits patiently for me to take a photo before she goes in and gorges.|
