Today we made it to our southern border. We used the Flagship Coronado ferry to get across the bay. It was bike paths and residential roads to the end. One dilemma we had was when we neared the end the road had areas with pools of water. Some of us turned back not wanting to bike through the potentially contaminated stagnant water.

The campgroung was nice and open but had hills on both sides which limited the daylight.
