Found a place at the Big Sur that charged $7.99 for a gallon of premium fuel!!!! That is $5 more than normal. Had no choice but fill up. Still, my credit card worked at this pump.

A final dash, all of it at night to here in Monterey.

They were nice enough to give me a ground floor room. And I found a some reasonable food at a Chinese restaurant, in the mall across the street.

In the morning the sun was shining, and I ran through the “Holland Marsh” of California. All things for salads. Plus I was really intrigued. 10 grapefruit for a dollar!
