Crawling Down the Coast

Who knew that it could take 3 hours to go 95 miles?

I crawled down the coast yesterday to La Jolla.

The "freeway" slammed shut in San Juan Capistrano and never opened back up.

I was 15 minutes late to my destination, and I am never late.

Oh well. Once there, the occasion was sun kissed and serene after the pounding rain of the night before. I wish I had been able to snap some pictures of the breathtaking scene. That desire, however, was thwarted by the tardiness of the photog.

On the way home, the same distance that had consumed 2 hours of my Saturday afternoon was covered in 20 minutes. That seems wrong somehow.

Note to self: next time allow 4 hours for the drive south.
