August 29 Santa Cruz to Monterey 37 miles

We didn’t have a cafe close so we had to eat whatever we had been carrying with us. Today the roads had lot of farm land that was planted with Strawberries and harvest was in full swing. We finally found a small cafe about 12miles down the road.  Family owned place with home cooking.

Most of the time we were on California #1 with very heavy traffic. Once we got to Monterey we had a major climb up to the campsite for the night.  A number of the riders had to walk part of the climb. I was one of them.

    I remember hiking New Mexico with you and finding wild strawberries with you. pretty sure I got a little sick from overdoing it. So glad you get fresh strawberries on this trek.
