Heading further west from Las Vegas I first stopped over night in Lake Havasu City. Lake Havasu City is a cool little city which is home to the London Bridge. Robert P. McCulloch purchased the London Bridge for $2,460,000. Moving the bridge to Lake Havasu City and reconstructing it in the middle of a desert cost an additional $7 million. The bridge was dismantled and shipped by boat from England to the United States and rebuilt on a peninsula on Lake Havasu. A channel was excavated under the bridge and an English Village replication was built next to it. The opening of the London Bridge in October 1971 brought a unique attraction to Lake Havasu City.

The next day I rode out to San Diego. This was my first experience of riding on a California freeway, at one point there was 9 lanes going in one direction, crazy high speed traffic. While I was in San Diego I did the tourist thing and visited Seaport Village, USS Midway and of course the San Diego Zoo.
