Distance today = 52.28 km; Total distance = 2652.39 km; Location = Malibu – 34 01.817′ N, 118 45.282′ W; Start time = 0921, Finish time = 1657


Today was a bit of a slog. Temperatures have dropped and the wind was icy. But I did know there'd be days like this.

I spent a lot of time on the Pacific Coastal Highway to Malibu. When I finally reached the town I was sure I could hear the sound of Charlie Waffles singing “Who Cut the Cheese”, coming from one of the seaside houses. Then again, Charlie Waffles is dead. I must have been imagining it.

It was one of those days that are good to finish. Tomorrow I head into Los Angeles, where we will be catching up with a former student of Carmel's – who she taught in Kindergarten in 1981. We will actually be staying in Hollywood.

Unfortunately, the Ellen show informed us they have a full schedule at the moment, but will be following the progress of the run. Maybe in the future. It was nice to know they  phoned in the first place.
