Day-47: Anaheim to Newport Beach

I’m very grateful for Joanie’s and Jim’s hospitality in hosting a pilgrim in their lovely house last night–thank you! Today’s trek of 15.3 miles includes a mile or so going north on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) to avoid the high-rent district and to avoid using my tent, which I didn’t even bring on this leg. My walk was nearly the extent of Harbor Blvd. heading due south. One of the more interesting photos captures some great garden sculptures–nearly an entire zoo. I also had some explaining to do to Alfonso about what these machines were doing just a few blocks from our motel.

I’m also recapping the end-game as I arrive in San Diego: Arrive: Thu, 11/8 Dana Point (20 mi) Arrive: Fri, 11/9 mission San Juan Capistrano / San Clemente Motel (14 mi) Arrive: Sat, 11/10 Oceanside Motel (walk through Camp Pendleton) (23 mi) Arrive: Sun, 11/11 Mission San Luis Rey and return to Oceanside Motel (10 mi) Arrive: Mon, 11/12 Cardiff by the Sea (stay with Sean) (12+ mi) Arrive. Tue, 11/13 San Diego (15+ mi) (stay with Sean) Arrive: Wed, 11/14 Mission San Diego (15+ mi) (stay with Sean) Arrive: Thu, 11/15 Ventura via train
