Turns out it was all fine! We will need to pay a bit extra as we are only going one way, but that's standard and would apply to any of the others companies anyway.
|Our car is rad.|
The trip was fascinating, really mountainous, even though here I don't think they credit them as mountains. It's not the Sierra Nevada so whatever.
|We were still impressed. Our cold-filled ears, however...|
There were lots of retro signs and zany, middle-of-nowhere towns.
|How's the vista?!|
We got to San Clemente in great time and found our motel with only minimal 'creative driving'. Dana, who runs the place is so nice and the rooms are decked out in a cool, retro style. (This was on the 16th and we're back here again tonight as I type, it's tops!)
|San Clemente Pier. You can sea dolphins, sea lions and grey whales from here.|
|We had a ridiculous amount of Italian for $30. The entrees were huge and then the mains arrived. We managed.|
The restaurant we decided on had the best waiter ever. He was right out of Point Break. He sounded like a Teenage mutant ninja turtle. We're finding a lot of America is like that, just like the movies. Except the people are for real.
