Hwy 1 Trip

Just got back from a week out of town on business Jan 6, tomorrow wife and I are hitting the road for a Cayucus to Ventura Hwy 1 cruise!

Weather has been high 60's and even better prediction for the coastal Hwy!

Sorry, had to share that, can't get anyone else in the house to listen to me!

Regards

Takes me back to my San Diego years just thinking about it. PCH has got to be the best oceanside crusing road in the world. At least until the jaybirds started putting up so many stoplites/signs.

I did the Hwy 1 from LA to Monterrey. Absolutely the most fun I've had in my Boxster. Enjoy it for me again!

Cayucos to Monterey (and further) is a lot more fun(if you do it early enough to avoid all the RV's and other site seers) And for even more fun, take 46W to Santa Rosa Creek Rd (lots more fun, at least it is on a bike, haven't driven it in the Box yet) into Cambria. Canyon carving heaven.

Well I am back from the Hwy 1 cruise, here are some of the best shots. Will not bore you with the beutiful clear sky ocean shots, but rather a spooky experience I had at the James Dean memorial at Cholame!!!

Weather was just great, no clouds and temps in the low 70!

Here are the descriptions of the pics:

Pic 1: The intersection where James Dean died (RIP) in the Porsche Spyder.

Pic2: This is the spooky one, if you look hard enough my read spoiler is raised? It did it automaticly when I parked. dont know if James Dean presence was felt or if my car was just happy to be there?

Pic3: Same shot as 2, but with the "Jack Ranch Cafe" in the background where James Dean bought his last lunch.

Pic4: This is Cayucos and the road is Hwy 1, my top is up cause there were some "Surfer type dudes" with Bob Marley hair hanging out in front.

Pic5: Woke up this morning Jan 8, and noticed this insecure vette parked next to me? Wadda he think, he'd going to get cuties from a Porsche?

Enjoy
