Woodlawn plantation in Virginia. Everything is in bloom and a great drive almost anywhere you go.

On Saturday I took Sora out for a spin. She's been sitting for several weeks. I'm testing new cameras so I will have Solex videos soon.

Dodged the pollen and put some break in miles on "Pearl". Just tooling around the hood but it was a great day for a spin.

Roadster Drive Today. Thursday. 4-15-21. 69 S2000. 195 miles. Camano Island.
Another beautiful day in the PNW. Sunny. Clear. Warm. mid 70's.
Drove to Camano Island in search of Ocean access and Mt Baker views for a Drive destination.
Found a Park and a boat launch on the North uncrowded end of the Island.
Both small and acceptable ( can get pics of the ocean with your roadster!)
But neither as good as our favorite, the Maple Grove boat launch.

DROPS Roadster Drive Today . Friday. 4-16-21. 69 S2000. 154 miles. Forest Service Rd. 70.
Like Summer today, so had to drive the roadster.
With Drops members. David N. 70 2000 and Ted Jr. 68 SR20DET.
My favorite Forest Service Road off Hwy 410 on the route to Mt Rainier.
10 miles of good curvy pavement. Snow along the upper road and at the end.
At a favorite Mt Rainier picture location, a local stopped and said "I have one too".
Went to his nearby garage and found a tired non running 68 2000.
Roadster parts or roadster finds always make for a better roadster drive.

If you haven't driven your roadster through a multi-level parking structure I highly recommend it. Lots of fun :D
