Home to San Diego

Woke up early to head out towards San Diego. And meet Jay for breakfast. I told him my standard thing about trying to eat at a local establishment and he recommended a great cafe in El Segundo. It is a very nice part of the LA area, just south of LAX. We talked about old teachers & principals and how life had changed since we were young.

As much as I liked hanging with my buddy, I was extremely anxious to do the remaining 150 miles to San Diego. So I parted ways with Jay and hit the road once again. There isn’t a lot of good riding roads between LA and San Diego on the coast, so I just took the 405 to the 5 and on down. I did pull over at one rest area to get a pic of the bike and the coast.

I started to get pretty excited after I hit Oceanside. I felt the perma-grin as I reached Encinitas. Getting off the Interstate I felt elated as I cruised down the local streets towards my house. Tracy had requested I let her know when I was close so I stopped to send a quick text. As I rounded the corner into the street, there she was waiting for me. What a great sight, my own home, my own bed and my future wife.

We celebrated my return with dinner that night at the Fish Market, downtown. The next day we did something I’ve wanted to do ever since I left…go to the beach. These pics were at Coronado, my favorite area beach.

What a great day to be home too, temps in the mid 70’s, sunny and beautiful with a slight breeze. Aaah, San Diego, I missed you.

Now that I’m home, I’ll take a week or two to reflect on my thoughts and then post a moto-adv wrap-up that discusses my trip and what I would and wouldn’t do next time. It’s been 9723 miles so far. And hopefully this is just the first of many trips like this. 🙂
