Tuesday and we have passed into California. This means we have done 2/3 of the states but only 1/3 of the miles. The riding today has been exceptionally pretty with the ocean a few feet to our right for much of the time. We are now in Cresent City, or rather in a KOA 5 miles north and camped in the middle of the redwood forest. The realy BIG redwoods are still 2 days south but we are, none the less, sleeping at the base of chuffing big trees. Tonight we went into town for tastly foodstuffs and had a meal around the camp fire and I am writing this by the power of KOA wiffy.
The whole group is now pretty independant; I drop the bags at their hotel around 2:30 and meet them here next morning but the late afternoons and evenings are pretty much my own. Not that I do anything very productive with the down time – I should really take up knitting.
