The raccoons were very active last night and even came up to my tent looking for food. What little food I had was locked safely away in the cupboard.
I awoke and hit the road: I am meeting a former coworker and good friend Lisa for breakfast! Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola,cookies, beautiful ocean location and Lisa! What’s not to Love!
After breakfast it was a beautiful beachfront ride to the Pidgeon Point Lighthouse
through ocean scrub
And farmland. This area is a major producer of Brussel Sprouts
Before long I was in Santa Cruz enjoying a beautiful view of pelicans feeding
And a Humpback Whale breaching (no photo though). It was a fantastic welcoming to Santa Cruz!
I rode to the transit station to find out when I could catch a bus to San Jose and found one loading up, so I joined. I arrived home in Los Gatos for a day and a half to tune my bike, do laundry and see Liz!
