Stayed an extra day in Bogada Bay this was due to inclement weather it was chucking it down for about 5 hours and packing up wet kit then fighting with the traffic on Highway 1 is not the future. Sue and I went into town to get ripped off for expensive food. On way back decided to try our luck thumbing a lift. 5 mins and a lift appeared in the shape of a very good looking girl who had an open bottle of wine between her legs and a voice that sounded like a 3 year old on helium. After swerving about a bit she dropped us back at the camp site.
Two things will stick in my mind about the campsite, a pair of abandoned kittens that somehow had survived being in the out doors, they were about 6 months old and the cutest cats of all time. There had been signs in town apparently advertising kittens and suddenly there are a bunch running around the campsite, go figure.
The other memory wont be so pleasant, I had a new neighbour who had put his tent about 12 ft from mine. A real old hobo looking dude, stick thin and grizzled and gnarled. He grunted a greeting and retreated to his tent. About 9 o clock he unleashes a torrent of urine out of his tent, I mean gallons of the stuff and then managed to repeat the performance at what seemed every hour during the night. The man was so thin I have no idea where he was keeping the stuff. I will have nightmares about this for years and will no doubt need therapy to get over it. I don’t think any of his rancid outpourings got to close but the sound of that thundering torrent……….ugh shudder.
Phil and Liz arrived with a friend called Duncan who was another tall man, great to see them and how do they stay so immaculate? It is a mystery, I seem to have gone feral, smelly unshaven and my clothes could walk about on my own. They looked so fit and clean 🙂
Said goodbye to Sue and Bruce for a few days, right now I am in Mill Valley which is just a stone throw from the Golden Gate Bridge. Tomorrow I will cycle over it and a huge milestone will be achieved. Catching up with Sue and Bruce in Monterey in about 5 days.
