All Aboard! To Oceanside, 1

(25 photos in gallery) Last Saturday I took a spontaneous train ride on Metrolink, and headed south, down the coast. Please join me today and tomorrow, looking out the train window as we journey from the city of Orange in Orange County to the seaside town of Oceanside in San Diego County. You’ll view scenery that’s not noticeable when you’re stuck in traffic on Southern California’s famous over-crowded freeways. While it’s easy to assume our area is nothing but buildings and concrete these days, empty land can still be seen out the train window.

I’ve decided to use a gallery for easier viewing, but want to include a link for those interested in the very large buildings captioned as Massive Hangers. They’re located in Tustin, on the former Marine Corp Air Station base, about 5 miles from my home. Per a website, they’re among the largest wooden structures in the world and once housed WWII airships (blimps). Below is a picture of one of the hangars that I took on another occasion, using my iPhone. You can better see the hangar’s massive size in comparison to the brand new 4-story apartment buildings next to it. ~SueBeeMassive Hangar in Tustin

    What a good train ride. Those bike paths did look good.

      They’re not as scenic as yours are, but most likely less hills!
