We were so happy to get out of the heat of the desert! After crossing the border, it was another couple of hours and another mountain range before we finally saw the ocean. Just after crossing the border, the terain suddenly changed from sandy/dirty desert to pure white sand dunes. It was like we left Arizona and went straight to the Sahara. It was the craziest thing. We didn't spend much time in San Diego though...all we did was eat dinner there. We were going to camp out around the city somewhere, but we had to place to stay for free up in Newport Beach so we drove for another hour or two north to meet my friend from Morristown, Sheri Belling.
