I was wrong; the bus fare was only $1.50, so I took it. Watsonville's not as small as I imagined it'd be, we passed a number of large shopping centers on the way in.

First round of foraging/scavenging within a few blocks of the transit center yielded rose hips (poor), lychees (excellent), and about a half bag of hot'n spicy pork rinds someone threw in the trash. I also picked what might be a fig, but I'm not sure because I don't recognize the large, asymmetrical leaves. I saw lemons and prickly pear too, but they were out of reach of the sidewalk.

I ate everything but the fig, which I'll nibble on over the course of the day. If I'm still alive tomorrow I'll assume it was OK.
