After a weekend with Pashit Tours we were on our own, with no more pre-booked hotels. I wanted to ride down the coast road, the Pashnit website had advised 'anti-clockwise' was the better way, closer to the views, easier to find a place to stop. So off to the coast it was.After watching 'The Wild One' some years ago, spotting Hollister on the map, and on the way, we dropped in. Nothing much to report,it was now so hot, Bobbie bought some mesh gloves from Hollister Motorsports. It appears just like any other small town we'd been through. Blockbusters, looks like many back in he UK. After a lunch, we carried on.When we reached I1, it was foggy, and the temperature dropped into the 50's. We had to stop and put more kit on.After all the 'you must see' the coast road, I was not too impressed. It was much cooler, a fair bit of traffic, It doesn't compare well with North West Scotland, or Norway's Fiords. The seals were nice, and the Best Western in San Simeon was great, with a proper restaurant.
