13 • San Clemente

Set out from the hostel around about 7:30, made good time to Casa de la Pinos where I had a coffee, massaged my feet and checked the blisters then made for San Clemente. The sunrise enchanting, the air cool and refreshing, energizing, however the temperature rose quickly, so starting off at 57°F, an hour after my coffee break it was already in the 80s.
