We rode by the usual control and headed to The Crema in Seal Beach. Stacy used the Nowait.com app to book our table 30 minutes before we got there and we strode in with no wait. Brilliant!
We then turned inland towards El Monte where the sun was shining and we made a quick turnaround back to the beach. We had the normal headwind which slowed us down to about 12mph but it least it wasn't like Willie's Wrightwood ride when the wind slowed us down to 6mph.
