To Mexico! (Or at least to the Mexican border!) We crossed Point Loma and rode along the harbor to the city of San Diego, then took our bikes on a passenger ferry across to Coronado. The Silver Strand State Beach brought us to Imperial Beach and shortly thereafter we crossed the Tijuana River to discover Mexico, or more specifically a high metal fence. On the way back to the motel, a rodeo of sorts in which men on horses grabbed calves by the tail gave us gringos a rural Mexican feel, and a celebratory dinner finished our trip. The wildfires got much worse in the last few days and now ringed San Diego, complicating airplane plans, but within days all were back home, musing at odd moments on options for the next ride…
Ferry to Coronado to ride to the border.
