It's dang hot in Arizona these days. To make the second day of the trip shorter, and to avoid riding in the midday sun, my father and I decided to depart Tucson around 7:00pm Wednesday night. Our goal was Blythe, CA which was about ~5 hours away (275 miles). This would put us there around midnight where we'd check into a hotel and grab 6 hours of sleep. A quick shot before we departed. Our dog Sheeba asked to have her picture taken while doing the "gotta get that cat" pose.
Yelp page on the place:) 4 1/2 stars!
Shaw's Steakhouse and gave it a try. Unbelievable Tri-Tip and Linguica sausage with chipotle dipping sauce, a traditional Portuguese dish. We had so much Tri-Tip that we wrapped it up and brought it with us the next day. It was even better as leftovers overlooking the ocean. Yes, there is a vegetable on the table somewhere..I thought I saw a lettuce leaf in the first picture. That counts.
Piedras Blancas Light Station off in the distance.
