Big Sur

Ever since leaving New Jersey when I would tell people that I was heading for California, they would say, "Don't miss Big Sur!" I must say that it lived up to the hype. This picture says a thousand words...jagged cliffs, different colors of water, crashing waves, sunny skies and tailwinds. It was like this for miles and miles. The road was tight and hilly but much more bearable with ideal conditions.
I camped out in a state park where I met a fellow rider about my age who was doing a week-long tour in the area. He treated me to breakfast on Thursday morning. He had recently bought a house with his girlfriend in the Sacramento area and she called him Wednesday night to tell him that taking a bike tour was selfish in the midst of all the work that had to be done on the house. I think talking with me over breakfast made him feel better...and the huevos rancheros made me feel better.
