We spent the morning with our friends before beginning the final leg of our trip together to San Diego. The coast road kind of ends, so we ended up on the I-5. It wasn’t very fun. The bright spot for me was lane splitting when ever the traffic nearly came to a stop. I really like splitting.
A shady carpool lane was also nice
A got a couple views of the ocean, but they weren’t very nice. We’d been spoiled by the views further up the coast.
My wife’s ears and tail didn’t survive California. The tail fell off in the morning. It MIGHT have been helped by an eager kid. The ear was dangling, so we took it off. Sad. We will have to fix when we get home.
Lots of military aircraft were flying around, so that was something to look at (and listen to).
We got a late lunch when we arrived in San Diego. It was tasty.
We set out riding around the city enjoying the views while we waited for check-in time.
We found a tiny lizard enjoying the view too
My wife picked out a hotel on one of the islands in the bay. The island had a nice view of the bay and downtown, but our room didn’t.
Dinner was ok. The highlight of going to dinner was being able to split lanes on a bike with no bags. So nice. I followed the proper splitting etiquette as well. My wife was beginning to relax with my splitting too.
We watched the sunset on the marina. San Diego was bitter sweet for me. We had made it to the destination, but the trip was really more about the journey than the destination. It meant we would be parting ways until I got home. It meant the for the first time in six weeks, I would be riding home.
