One of my favorite parts of riding scooters is the friends we make along the way. I can honestly say that the friends whom I spend most of my free time, fun time, with are those I met through scooting.
This past Sunday, we had a medium ride from Bojangles on Southside Boulevard to St. Marys Seafood for lunch. That restaurant is located on the outskirts of St. Marys, Georgia.
One of our regulars, Sue, has been missing many rides recently and I had asked her through Facebook to come back for a ride. She did.
I planned the route up and to make it where we would arrive after opening, had to plan a circuitous route taking us to Fernandina Beach first.
The south end of Amelia Island. Eight scooters riding up.
It was a beautiful day, a bit windy but clear and cool.
We were to meet Ana at the Florida Georgia border. She is a new scooter friend to me as we first met with her a couple of months ago on our last ride to the area.
On this one, she offered to show us her 1951 Vespa Fenderlight after lunch.
So we headed to her house and she opened the garage to reveal this wonderful scooter.
It is in perfect condition and, after a few kicks, started and ran well. A special treat for all.

What a beauty.
