4/11/13 – California, here we come (or here we still are, more like)

Watched some of First Class amidst packing and then hit the road for our best drive yet. We drove along the 1, which is known as one of the best driving roads – through the mountains, past national parks and along the coast line. We listened to more of That Anime Show as our soundtrack and almost died when Terri said she once dated a guy called Gaston, as that prompted Tatum into bursting into song. If he hadn’t done it then I would have! We also stopped at an elephant seal viewing area for a little while along the way. The way they flop about is still hilarious.

Awww, definitely worth the unanticipated stop!

Oh well that’s comforting…

We got into Monterrey about three hours after. Today and yesterday have just been stepping stones to break up the distance to San Fran really, otherwise the drive would be ten straight hours (though we did manage to take advantage and book another whale watching tour in Monterrey for tomorrow!) I was Marvin Gaye (i.e. starving) by the time we checked into our hotel so we ordered some takeout – and had a huge giggle over me accidentally saying ‘spuffalo wings’ (I think you had to be there…)

Watched some Adventure Time, Psych and Durarara!! We made a drinks run to a nearby petrol station and saw some Hangover style energy shots (which I will totally have to get if I see them again, since there were ones with Bradley Cooper on the front!) Spent the rest of the night writing, watching more Durarara!! and drawing on Kel’s tablet. Managed a rough sketch of Ed before she wanted it back, which I’ll hopefully finish sometime tomorrow.

Best driving view I’ve ever had!
