I’ve been back on the bike now for 4 days and have just crossed the border out of California into Arizona! So, a fair amount has happened in the last week.
I successfully met up with Polly (sister) in San Diego airport who handed me a bag of goodies from my family – thanks fam. We then picked up the hire car and made our way to the booked Air bnb. I only have a limited amount of free time so we crammed all our sightseeing into three days. A trip up the coast, a surf/beach trip, a few historic sights and a particular highlight for both of us, was a whale watching trip into the Pacific. We were incredibly lucky as we saw three hump back whales and a massive pod of dolphins – the guide kept telling us that this was not the norm!
On Wednesday I cycled away. Polly and I met throughout the day. We got a small insight into the American Halloween on Thursday and a few sips of the local wine! On Friday morning Polly left me in the desert to head back to San Diego to meet a friend before she flying home.
Lots more desert for me over the next couple of weeks. I’m already amazed at what scenery America has to offer; and that was just in one state.
