When the sun rose this morning, we were surprised to see the view from Winnie at Malibu Beach RV Park. It was an awesome view of the Pacific Ocean. Since I had to be on a conference call this morning we decided to stay until after the phone call. I made the call from my office on a picnic table overlooking the ocean. It's tough work, but somebody has to do it.

The way out of the RV park to the Pacific Coast Highway took us down a road alot like what we had to drive in the dark last night. Take a look at the picture I posted and then close your eyes and you'll get the sensation we had driving the road at night. We followed the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu eventually getting on to I405 for passage through LA. No plans to stop in the City of Angels. Fortunately, traffic heading south was not as bad as northbound lanes. After passing through LA we stopped in Seal Beach for lunch at a DDD spot, "Schooner or Later". This place didn't seem to fit into any of the DDD categories. The setting was nice overlooking the yacht harbor full of sail boats, but the food was ordinary. My lunch looked better than it tasted.

Our last leg of the journey took us down the coast on I5 through San Juan Capistrano (see the swallows in the pictures), past the San Onofre Boobs (nuclear power plant cantainment buildings is the technical term), and through Camp Pendleton. We got to the San Diego area about rush hour and got caught in a couple of traffic jams putting us into the San Diego RV Resort after dark. We had dinner with old friend Don Kessler and his wife Maggie and will visit with them until Sue goes home on Sunday. We're looking forward to some sightseeing in and around San Diego. Tomorrow is maintenance day for Winnie (a few minor repairs, vacuum the carpets, clean the windows, etc.) after the long trip west and a car wash for the Equinox.
