Socal Bike tour day 2

Marina to Kirk creek

Free camping last night.  The camp host also offered us free tickets to the us open.

Started the morning with some Peets camp coffee.  There is nothing better than having a cup of Peets while out camping.  We then rode to Monterey and had a huge breakfast.

When we left Monterey and Carmel we were treated to the gorgeous views that are classically Big Sur.  We had a really good tail wind going there.  The feeling of rolling along at 25+mph and hearing nothing but the tires rolling on the pavement and the gears turning is awesome.  We also were treated to awesome views of the Bixby bridge.

We all ate burritos at Big Sur except Chris H.  He bought a pack of hot dogs and proceeded to BBQ them up over the camp stove in front of the restaurant at Big Sur. We stopped and enjoyed the view of Pfeiffer Falls.  We then rode on to our second camp at Kirk creek.

Two miles before the Kirk Creek camp, we stopped at Lucia and loaded up on supplies for the night.  I found a homemade chocolate peanut butter bar.  We also bought 2 bottles of wine.

We had the best camp site there that over looked the ocean.  We meet up with two bike tourists that we had been passing and been passed throughout the day.

That night we cooked pasta and chili.  We drank two bottles of wine and had Klondike ice cream bars for desert.  The other bike tourists were dumbfound while they ate nutella on bread…

That night I woke at 230 to rustling and thought it was racoons.  In the half asleep stooper, I hissed and yelled when i heard the noise.  It turned out to be Tim. He was fairly startled while he was trying to get back into his sleeping bag when he heard me hissing at him.  We laughed uncontrollably for a few minutes then went back to sleep.
