The last two days were studies in contrast. Yesterday we biked from half Moon Bay to a campsite In the middle of the California farm country. Half of the ride was along the coast and half thru very fertile huge fields of Brussel sprouts and kale. This morning we began in farming country; it is picking season for strawberries and brussels sprouts and workers were everywhere manually picking in the fruit and vegetables. Around noon, we got to Monterey with a beautiful coastline, crowds of tourists and a ride called the 17 mile ride which borders the Monterey Peninsula which the the descendants of the Del Monte family and the community have privatized and charge cars $40 to drive through.
