31 mellow miles
Tomorrow I am going to tackle the urban jungle that is Los Angeles. I will ride the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu and into Venice before I hit what will surely be an incredibly boring and slow 25 miles of city streets. I am not looking forward to the riding the next few days. I am looking forward to seeing Queen Sonia and the rest of her familial court though! We might even have the chance to renew the mini golf rivalry that has sat dormant for too long. Actually, its less a rivalry that a free clinic that I provide for Sonia, but her for self-esteem we'll give her the benefit of the doubt.
STOP. THE. PRESSES. At last light this evening, A Mourning warbler was reported from the Laguna Tams where I was birding this morning. The bird was found by 2 very reputable birders. I am going to hit the spot tomorrow morning with the hope that the bird sticks around. I am no 100% sure how I will handle it if we (the other birders who are sure to show up tomorrow and I) have difficulty in relocating it. As of now, I think I am willing to push the whole day into this bird. This would mean staying in this area tomorrow night and then heading into LA on Tuesday instead. I am in now rush at the moment. Right now birds mean more than time, so slowing down doesn't hurt me at all as far as I am concerned.
OK, off to bed to get some rest before tomorrow's search!
