LAS - You must be a hard-core surfer :-) Maybe you could publish a hub from your perspective? That would be helpful!

Yup, I use to go to all these places when I was a boy, I'd like to take my son back there too.

FYI...this does not work unless you copy and paste it.

San Juan Train Depot

Catlyn I love San Clemente ! Just beautiful there . Sometimes I take the coaster from downtown SD . And sometimes I drive up there on the 5 . Never been to the San Juan train depot . But I have one sister who lives In Costa Mesa and one who lives In Tustin . So I see some of the OC .

You have motivated me to take another peek around that county , thx for an Interesting read !

Thanks for stopping by Tony! Next time you take the coaster, ride up to San Juan and spend some time wandering around! The mission is extraordinary!
