Last breakfast at the Best Western Yacht Harbor hotel with fresh waffles, check out, and then off to Anza Borrego, California's largest state park east of San Diego. The route to it is very scenic with steep winding roads through the coastal mountains, the park itself (or at least the small fraction of it that we were able to visit) is a surprisingly impressive desert landscape. We didn't see the mountain sheep, but the Palm Canyon trail was refreshing and entertaining even without it. We probably visited the park a bit too early, but at least some shrubs were blooming.
After spending way too much time at the park, we headed back west through the mountains and then north for an overnight stop in Ventura.
