Next stop is San Francisco, where, after crossing the International Date Line, I'm hoping to swim in the North Pacific on the same day (well, date).

Actually, it felt more like mid-Summer than the first weekend of Spring. I was up in Townsville in tropical Far North Queensland for the weekend. The days were very hot and humid, so a dip in the Pacific Ocean, early in the morning, was very welcome.
I walked along The Strand, which is the seafront promenade, to a couple of sections of the beach and had a couple of swims. The ocean was very warm (and a wee bit muddy), but still worth a dip.
