|A long day.
Wake up in Cambria and set down in Westminster (Huntington Beach). I'll have to check the GPS stats - it shows a 400 mile day but I don't think I was out for 400 miles. Checking via the map software - yep 400 miles.
Cambria to the Santa Monica mountains was a thru shot. A lunch stop, in I think Lompoc, I listened to some hanger flying at a Subway - always fun.
The closer to LA I progressed the more congested the traffic became. Down at the Santa Monica Mountains I took a left and headed up for some hills. With darkness I headed down and went in search of the Santa Monica hostel. That found I decided to keep moving. It was recommended by the folks in Cambria but it was an urban setting and I was unsure as to parking.
Processing south through L.A. at night was perhaps a good thing - less traffic - and some nice city lights. I took a peek at Huntington Beach but moved inland a bit and grabbed a hotel. Long Day Done.
