So here it is, the last day on the mother road. We had a lazy start to our last day, waking up later than usual. We then met up with some old friends, who are now locals to the LA scene, and caught up over an early lunch. Austin and Bethany showed us a great local food joint in the area, known as PINK'S hot dogs. As we pulled in to park, we knew it was going to be tasty since the customers where lined up down the block. The four of us enjoyed some chili dogs before heading to another hot spot, the PinkBerry, for some frozen yogurt (to help with digestion ; ) says Bethany - Dannon Sales Rep).
After parting ways, we continued on to Santa Monica. Here we came to the end of our journey to find the Pacific Ocean at our feet. We spent the remainder of the day walking the Santa Monica Pier and relaxing on the beach. We then headed back to pack up one more time. Our journey began at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois and ended at Santa Monica Pier in California. Two weeks, 2500 miles, and memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you to all those readers out there that have been following us along the way; and thank you to all those local 66 business owners who are keeping the spirit alive.
