I made it. Once again the preparation is over. I’m in the experience itself.
I arrived yesterday and got settled into the hostel where my bike group will meet on Sunday afternoon. The group has already started to form. I almost immediately met Sally from the UK who is starting yet another phase of her world wide adventure, having just spent time in Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand. Then today Andy, Robin, Doug, and Sheri arrived as well as my co-leader Jared. We are all giving ourselves time to acclimate.
I can see already that this blog will be different. It has to be.
San Diego is gorgeous, though I’m really away from its skyscrapers way out on its western edge close to Ocean Beach and the west coast’s longest pier; it reaches 900 feet out into the Pacific. I’ve already been out there twice. It is Southern California, surf board, young rosterfarians (sp?), frisbees, dogs and yoga on the beach; pot fragrance abounds.
