San Diego to Oxnard
" Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink in the wild air" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today we got on the road about 10AM and headed north on the PCH through San Diego, La Jolla, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Redondo Beach, Inglewood, Santa Monica, Maibu and ending at Oxnard near where I was born. We saw some beautiful beaches and also some terrible slums near LA. We saw seals having pups in La Jolla and lots of pelicans along the coast. It was a tiring drive going along the shore and not too much on the way of pay offs of scenery for the effort. We are hoping it will get better the further north we go. Tomorrow it looks like the PCH goes north through some more undeveloped areas and hopefully the views will be much better.
