I decided to break up this whirlwind of pedals, panniers and Cliff Bars with a nice relaxing night of camping under the stars (and within ear-shot of the Ocean) at Doheny State Beach. Here is some of the photographic evidence of my journey, one of the best/rejuvenating/therapeutic/challenging/introspective/cathartic/fun 36 contiguous hours in recent memory:
