    And today, spotted a wrecker dragged my Model A home. Most of my previous breakdowns were simple, fix on the road side issues, not today. Turned a corner heading to work, make the 1-2 shift and BANG, nothing. Engine runs, trans shifts, no grinding, clunking or other noises of horror, just a clean break somewhere.

    Axle didn’t slide out so maybe the shortened driveshaft, don’t know, we’ll see.

    Be safe out there.

    Coastal Highway 1 is below along the shoreline and Laguna Beach is north over the right of the photo. The I-5 freeway is to the right where the road below feeds into it. Yesterday, we called it the “100 mile view” as Catalina Island was in the background and so was the San Pedro view plus the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

    Hello,

    We were on one of our post office, gas fill up drives and a feel good day by the shoreline. For weeks almost a whole month of May and part of June has been grey, overcast, drizzling, or actual rain. Although the waves were up from the tropical storm that came from down South, the daylight seemed like a “Seattle” month. May Grey and of course June Gloom fits the local wording.

    But, yesterday, we were following an old truck down the steep road leading to one of the best views in all of South Orange County. The road below is the Coastal Highway 1 from Laguna Beach and heads South to San Clemente and the southern most part of Orange County where another great surf spot awaits.

    This drive, my wife and I had taken many times when we just looked, ahhhh-ed, and drove on to our destination. This time after the many grey overcast drizzling days, we stopped at an overlook mini park and “settled in for a spell.” (an old OKC slogan learned from her side of the family) This downhill drive is in a class by itself as the ocean gets right in your face and unless you watch the road, you are tempted to look to the horizon the whole way down.

    The top photo is facing West toward the Dana Point Harbor. All roads leading down to Coast Highway have some ocean views along the coast. But, this one is, in our humble opinion, one of the best. It is so close to the water as you have to drive correctly or down the cliff you go. The old truck turned left on the lower highway and headed South. (No photos as I was concentrating on driving downhill on the narrow road.) We looked West and enjoyed the moment.

    Jnaki

    We have some friends living in the area and over the years, visited them near this exact spot. As the old saying goes, despite the many times we have seen this particular view, the saying is: “It never gets old…”

    Hello,


    Wouldn’t you know it, my wife and I did another short drive to see some houses high on a northern city hilltop. They had some great views, but it was not for us since the freeway down below gave some consistent noise that was not pleasurable. Backyard parties or just enjoying the views are not going to happen as the noise was overpowering.

    The homes were near the steep coastal roadway to Coast Highway 1 and yes, we took that route again. (We had some business near the coastal pedestrian overpass bridge in the top right photo) The coastal fog had cleared up and the drive was worth it. But, that dang fog was so thick earlier, that one would think it was a set in a movie, with your hands disappearing in front of your face. We left when the fog receded back towards Catalina Island.
    upload_2021-6-16_4-21-31.png
    Same view just going up the hill not downhill. It seemed safer to take a photo while driving.


    Not a 180 degree view as would have been taken with a fish-eye lens, but it will do for now. This coastal beach area is the last of the pure coast/shoreline drives and views from the Amtrak train that starts in San Diego. Up the coast from San Diego goes through the cool little coastal communities in San Diego County. But, after entering Orange County near the old Western White House, it is all beach/waterfront cruising in the train.

    As the Amtrak Train comes into the northern part near the Dana Point Harbor, it goes under one last pedestrian bridge (right side in the right photo). Now, it heads inland to Los Angeles and the famous Union Station. (and northward to Santa Barbara if so inclined.) As you can see, there are some concessions to living right on the waterfront lots in this part of So Cal.

    Jnaki

    If the hour plus drive from coastal Orange County down to San Diego is not in the cards for you, the best alternative is to take the Amtrak train when it resumes the regular times. When we used to surf at the Camp Pendleton Beachfront , it was standard operating procedure to know what time it was when the Amtrak train came whizzing by on the trestles. 6:30 am on the spot. Rain or shine. It was like clockwork.

    The small viewpoint park on the tall cliff top location.

    For southern or northern driving hot rod folks, the coastal Highway 1 follows the shoreline through most cities along the way. Since the train goes inland at this Orange County point, the hot rod cruising highway now follows the coastline all the way up through Orange County and Long Beach/San Pedro area to Oxnard through the Los Angeles beach areas. One of the best drives in all of So Cal.

    For those with a weekend in mind, the whole coastal route can be cut down into sections for a more thorough staycation/driving cruise.

    Don't thank me, I didn't mean to drop a dime on anyone. I didn't
    think I hit send, and wrote something different. I now feel like a
    phinque.

    I remember some poor chump trying to get into the Hunnert Car Pile
    Up, a great casual gathering. I don't remember his car but with one
    very small exception it was legal. It must have taken him an honest
    three hours to get to the entry gate, only to be refused entry because
    of a chrome chain rear license frame. When I saw him get busted by
    one of the club members (with a grin on his puss) it pissed me off and
    I had no skin in the game.

    I'm not giving Mr. Moriarity grief, I'm hip to the rules, but I'll never
    purposely sic the mods on someone.

    everyone should always report off topic content, if we don't this place will become just another "everything" car site
