Hello. I’m Suekichi.
I’m writing the next episode of the cycling tour in the US.
3 days when I biked from Santa Cruz to Big Sur
This episode is about the 3 days when I biked from Half Santa Cruz to Big Sur.
Trekking Mt. Manuel Trail and meeting them again at the campground.
Fancy Taco Rice
In the morning, I left Santa Cruz where I spent with surfer B.
I stared biking south again.
I biked through these green field in Mos Landing.
I arrived at the town of Mos Landing after 3 hours biking.
At noon, I was hungry and tired that I stopped by the Mexican restaurant.
I ordered a taco rice. It was about 12 bucks.
The taste was a little fancy. It made me feel like eating the real one in Mexico.
Camping ground in Montray
I got to the campground in Veterans Memorial Park around 5pm.
When I was eating dinner, a man spoke to me.
He was also biking around by himself even though He was 63 years old.
I wanna be active like him even if I get older.
Sunset from the top
Next day, I passed through the straight road surrounded by ocean and mountains.
I took a break with cupcakes on the way.
I got to the campground in Big Sur.
I set a tent to spend a night and walked around the campground.
I found the trailhead of Mt. Manuel and started trekking.
I started around 3pm and got to the top around 5pm.
The sunset from the top was beautiful.
It looked like the one scene in Lion King.
I managed to go back to the tent before I got dark and I went asleep soon.
The picture in a Hermitage
I left the campground early in the morning.
I dropped in the Bakery nearby for breakfast.
A freshy-baked bread and a hot coffee was great.
On the way to the next campground, I found the signboard of Hermitage.
I was curious that how the hermitage on the hill.
I pushed my bike to the hermitage and I could see this nice view.
I went into a gift shop next to the Hermitage.
It has religious books and some artworks made by local artists.
This is my favorite one.
It was very similar with the view that I saw on the top of Mt. Manuel.
I wanted to take it but I couldn’t afford it so I bought the postcard instead.
Good to see them again!!
I left the Hermitage and headed to the campground nearby.
When I arrived at Kirk Creek Campground, I found two bikes that I’d seen before.
There were the Spanish couple I met in the campground of Half Moon Bay.
I was so happy to see them again and we took a video together.
The journey with them begun.
To be continued.
