Traveling Onward Through California
It is a beautiful morning in San Jose as we continue our post Awards/Draft Vacation. We plan to swing by the HP Pavilion aka Shark Tank in a few minutes before heading to San Francisco. I like seeing other arenas even when there's nothing going on.
After the Draft on Saturday, we spent Saturday night hanging out with Ryan Porth of RLD Hockey in Venice Beach. On Sunday, after Ryan left, we returned to Venice and worked our way up the coast through Wine Country to Pismo Beach.
On Monday, we rode the Pacific Coast Highway up through Big Sur which was absolutely incredible. After an issue with the campground where we had reservations last night, we continued onward to find meager accommodations at the Motel 6 in San Jose, which was actually the same price as the campground.
Today, we are heading to San Francisco for the day before camping tonight at Half Moon Bay, where the famous Mavericks surf breaks. On Wednesday, we are set to see the Dodgers play the Giants in San Francisco before heading out to Yosemite.
Unfortunately, I will miss the free agent frenzy on Thursday but Ryan Porth at RLD Hockey will have it covered. I wasn't surprised that the Preds did not make a qualifying offer to Denis Grebeshkov but I did think they would qualify Dustin Boyd. I'll check in again when we have Internet again.
