Left Glendora at 5:50 this morning and headed for the end of Route 66 at Santa Monica Pier.
The weather this morning was a cool 58* which was a little chilly. Right now it is 55* at Morro Bay and is expected to go down to 48* tonight. It must be common temps because our room has heat but no air conditioner.
Oh and this is where we ate lunch and supper last night. Awesome food. The fries are so good that is all we had for supper.
We got to Pasadena and rode down the street the Tournament of Roses Parade is on. Susie got pics of the Wrigley Mansion that was donated to the city of Pasadena to be headquarters for the parade.
Next was Hollywood and the Hollywood sign and the corner of Hollywood and Vine. There are more homeless people in Hollywood than I have ever seen. It was the first time Susie or I saw someone actually eating out of a garbage can.
Then we were off to Beverly Hills and a trip down Rodeo Drive.
Here is a video:
Finally we reached the end of Route 66 and the Santa Monica Pier. It is quite a place and even though we were there early in the morning there were a lot of people there. We met a nice couple that asked where we were from and where we were going. She was from New Zealand and told us she tells her husband she can see it from the pier. hahaha
We also met a life guard named Bruno that went to school at SUNY Ithaca and had a good friend that was still in Syracuse, NY. We talked with him for quite a while and he took our picture on the beach.
Then we headed North on Highway 1 and 101 (Pacific Coast Highway) up the coast of California. What a difference from the Mohave Desert we crossed coming from Las Vegas. Also as I have already mentioned the temperature is quite different too. It is 64* cooler than when we were in Las Vegas two days ago.
That is it for today. Tomorrow we keep going up the coast and hopefully it won't be so cloudy and foggy.
