We did it!

** More funny pictures have been added to yesterday’s blog 🙂

From Rialto, we drive on Foothill Blvd. So far so good, hardly any traffic, very scenic. We even meet a few ‘compadres’.

Foothill boulevard falls onto Huntington then onto Colorado boulvards. A bit more traffic but we are still o.k. We spot the sign for the Arroys Pkwy at the last minute but once again we all manage to stay together.

Instead of taking Hwy 101 to Santa Monica Blvd like originally planned, we decide to take Sunset Blvd. Sounds like a great idea…after all, it crosses Hollywood.

Turns out we zigged instead of zagged and our problems started…We ended up taking a few wrong turns and having to do a few U-turns. At this point, we do not think we will be arriving at the Santa Monica Pier together. Eventually however, before we get to our destination, we are reunited by chance.

Our rooms at the Seaview Hotel are on Ocean Blvd and a short walk from the official end of Route 66.

We even get a chance to put our toes in the water. The end of a great journey with awesome people!
