Total trip mileage: 2,102 miles
It was just a hop down the coast today to San Diego to visit my former housemate, so there was no rush to leave early. David, Vickie and I had breakfast at the Sugar Shack in Huntington Beach’s downtown area. We then walked to the beach.
After playing in the water, we walked back to the condo and jumped in the pool. It was a fun morning and I have to say that I’ve had a really fun time hanging here in Huntington Beach. Many thanks to my hosts David and Vickie!
It was about 2pm when I packed up and headed down the coast.
I arrived at Blake’s in San Diego about 6pm. After a drink and some homemade salsa, Blake treated me to Whole Hog BBQ for dinner. I had a Cubano sandwich while Blake had ribs. Everything was really good. Back at the apartment, we had more drinks and some dessert.
During the first leg of this trip, the stretch down the coast, I’ve camped one night, stayed in motels five nights, and stayed with friends eight nights. I feel really privileged to be invited into their homes.
The next leg along the south will provide opportunities to camp more , weather permitting. Tomorrow I will leave California and enter Arizona.
