The morning ride was once again just endless ups and downs as Highway 1 veered away from the ocean at Bodega Bay and then eventually back again at Tomales Bay where we rode along the shoreline for about 20 miles
It must be oyster season in Tomales Bay because every tiny town we passed was full of cars lined up to buy oysters at the docks or at little shack seafood places. We found one such place for lunch.... The Marshall Store where about the only thing on the menu for Catalina that wasn't seafood was a pork sandwich.
We finally made it to the hotel just moments ahead of the cars and after cleaning up in the first real showers in 2 days we had a nice reunion dinner at the hotel restaurant.
Tomorrow we will bike the last few miles to the Golden Gate without packs or trailers. I don't even remember what it is like to ride without 60 lbs of gear and trailer hanging off the back. Then we will say good bye to Grandma and Grandpa and start our week-long family vacation in San Francisco before driving home to Texas.
