So today I finally bring my trip from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean to a close. Honestly the trip ended on July 26th when I got to San Francisco, but I wanted to actually get to the ocean before I count it. So 3070 miles, 29 days, eight states, two states’ worth of license plates, vehicle titles, and DL/ID/registration/insurance transfers later, I’m finally bringing my transcontinental trip to an end. Why didn’t I just head to Ocean Beach on the 26th you ask? Well it was pretty simple, it was foggy and it just didn’t look as spectacular as I wanted it to be. July 27th was pretty nice, but the car was starting funny and I took the entire day to wash the car from all the bugs and bird dung from my car… then three weeks worth of foggy, muggy, cold weather.
This afternoon’s sun was pretty refreshing after my earlier Facebook comment about how ironic Sunset District’s name really is when 90% of the year it’s too foggy to even watch a sunset at all. But today, the view was spectacular, quite windy, but the skies were clear and people rushed out to the beaches to catch some rays. I ended up driving up north just beyond where the Cliff House is. Last time this place was still just a pile of dirt with random unpaved concrete sections. Now it’s a nice paved trail that I wouldn’t mind coming back tomorrow and see where everything leads. I also got some fantastic shots too. Here’s a panoramic shot of the parking lot.
