Another day of mountains and really heavy head winds. I am absolutely shattered. We passed by some amazing scenery, not just alone the coast, but inland, above all. Half Moon Bay is so close to San Francisco that it was too expensive to stay there overnight. We’ll start the Half Moon Bay to Palo Alto leg early tomorrow morning – the route crosses some steep mountains, and we’ll need to be there by 12 pm to meet some friends in SAP.


I’d love to write more, there are so many things to write about, but I’m falling asleep…

Woke up at 6, getting ready for our next leg of the journey, from Half Moon Bay to Palo Alto.

What is my thought for the day? – We’re slowly getting nearer the end of this cycle. The day after tomorrow, we’ll be arriving in Napa, stay there for Sunday and leave on Monday to come home. I’m thinking of all I gained and all I lost over the past days while we were cycling. It’s not a straight forward ‘account’. And I’ll have to think about this a little bit more – but I’m getting the feeling that this trip has been a bit like what life offers us in general: gains and losses. It always depends on us what we make out of it and how we look at it.

We are Dreamboaters. Wasting time of what could have been or should have been is not our thing. It’s about what will be. And we know where we’re heading: down the river and into the wide ocean. Into the wild.

“It’s not always necessary to be strong, but to feel strong.” There we go – for another day!
