We meant to get further along the road but the resulting traffic from this event (that we were very unaware was happening) meant that it took us an extra 3 hours to get through Palm Springs. I will say that we saw some really impressive/wasteful off road vehicles, trucks and shiny trailers. A lot of them. So, we drove to Ventura, filled up on our make it yourself Belgian waffles in the motel lounge, brought along our bowls of froot loops and hit the road. We detoured at Morro Bay because Annika wanted to see the beach. Here's our little photo essay of the day.
