Day 72: Plaskeet Creek to Monterey

Posted: May 23, 2014 in America: Miami to San Francisco


BIG SUR coast – one of the most stunning sections of road anywhere in the world between San Simeon and Carmel. The Cabrillo Highway (highway 1) winds along the side of the cliffs, hanging perilously close to the edge, prone to landslides, subsidence and endless road closure.




Mission visit:

San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo – June 3rd 1770 – was the second mission established along the Californian coast. Fell into disrepair with only the ruins remaining, until 1921, when excavations to the old foundation to establish shape and layout before rebuilding began.




Cycling into Monterey along the beach a homeless guy pushing a shopping trolley asks me,  “How far are you going?” I replied, “I’ve come from Miami.” He replied, “Do you want to smoke a DOOBEE!?”

Goodnight y’all

Expenditure $10.38
