At eleven the sky cleared and I decided that we needed to get back on the road. About five miles south the sky turned blue and it looked like it might turn out to be a good day of riding.
Riding south I stopped in a town called Garberville which seemed to be inhabited by hippies and cloaked in the smell of marijuana. We were about 25 mile from the Hwy 1 turnoff and I looked forward to getting over to the coast again.
At Leggit we took the exit for Hwy 1. Leggit is home to one of several drive-thru trees. Lucy and I stopped so we could get a picture and stretch my legs.
We continued down Hwy 1 which travels through the forest for twenty mile before arriving on the California coast. The sun was getting low and the light was amazing. We stopped for a couple of minutes and met a bike rider named Michael who was from Germany. We talked about both of our trip and then I set off to find a place to camp for the evening.
We stopped at the Westport Beach KOA and setup camp for the evening. Riva the woman at the front office gave me a discount on the tent site. It was a much better evening than the night before.
