Day 30, Beach Biking, Sony Tour, May 3rd

19.3 miles today, 4,928.1 miles total

Gorgeous Friday…sunny 80 degrees! We drove 9 miles up to the Santa Monica pier then rode our bikes almost 8 miles up the coastal bike path to Will Rogers State Park Beach with friends, Hannah  & Rachel. After a leisurely lunch, we experienced the amazing LA snail’s pace traffic to Sony Pictures Entertainment to get a personal tour from our gracious hostess, Michelle Mignon. “Awesome” kudos to Michelle, she knows what that means!?! “Celebrating Indomitable Spirit.” Who knows, I might apply for one of the medical consultant positions at Sony!?!? We took some more pictures of the amazing sunset from the effects of the huge wildfire just up the coast. Back at our beachside Dockweiller State Park campground site, it’s incredible to see the huge jets going out over or coming  in from the Pacific Ocean on their flight path to & from LAX International Airport.  And then under that technology, to walk among the many firepits on the beach. It’s a physical juxtaposition of pre-dawn man with 21st century technology man.  From LA, m, b, w & t
