Day 29, Santa Barbara, An Apple A Day, Hwy 1 Wildfires, Playa del Rey, May 2nd

149.3 miles today, 4,908.8 miles total

We ventured down the coast to Santa Barbara today going up and down State Street from the pier up to the Apple Store. We had lunch at Kahuna Grill, an eclectic surfing establishment. Beth’s 5 year old Apple MacBook Pro went on the blink so we got her another one. This Apple a day has kept this doctor at bay! Will purchased a cool wood carving made from magnifying glass burning. A huge wind swept California wildfire from Santa Ana winds covered Pacific Coast Highway 1 about 50 miles north of LA covering 8000 acres just after we passed by that area late today. We stopped and took a few pictures after we had passed the part of the road about to be closed. You can even see the glow of the fire from our campsite south of Santa Monica. We are also near the end of the LAX runway and can watch & hear the planes take off over the ocean! Our site is literally on the beach at the Dockweiller State Park Beach. Tomorrow beach biking, Sony tour, taking in southern California weather…From LA, m, b, w & t

And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
