Day 38: Coastal Dunes (Pismo) to Refugio

Breakfast, bagels, in Broadway. Not very good. Starbucks for coffee and wifi.
Set of late, just before 12.
I cycled, quite quickly. Kelley drove to Lompoc, then cycled back about 10 km to meet me by the Vandenberg air base – Space Command! Too late for lunch at Floriano’s so instead did the Jamala Cafe; was okay.

Skipped the remaining 25km in favour of more time chatting with Kelley, and being able to have dinner on beach at sunset. As it was, the hills forced an early sunset, so that didn’t happen. But we did swim in the sea, and then found a much better (and presumably more expensive) campsite next door that had a great little cafe that we sat in and warmed up over a cuppa. Then got back to tent about 8.30, some ransoms turned up needing somewhere to park/pitch so we let them share out pitch. They’d brought the wrong set of polls for their tent. Hilarity ensued as they tried to jimmy something together.

We wandered down to the beach and sat a while atop a lifeguard hut chatting. Then bed. Had the outer on, but both sides of the doors rolled up, to get a good airflow — the previous night there had been too much condensation with two of us.
