Vintage Bikes From Nepal

There are always surprises in store at Forrest's parent's hippie home among the redwoods near Point Reyes, California. Last weekend we went up for the usual fare of fresh seafood (mussels harvested from Tomales Bay earlier that day), good conversation and good wine, a few too many bottle as usual.
