Wow really?! Thanks, so catalina island, man i cant believe i forgot about that place, and what a cool and simple trip that would be.....i could probably ride a boat there from some where here in oc and 40 bucks isnt too bad at all. Could have some friends come and make a fun trip out of it.

yeah and i think for like $80 you can take a small helicopter. I've only ever taken the boat but I'm sure that the helicopter ride is cool too.

this is the view from the front office of the hotel i stayed at last time i went.

very nice....i gotta chose a clear day to go, and i'd LOVE to take that helicopter ride but do you think they'd let the side door stay open so i could take pics Nation Geographic style? Hah, i dont think they would....i'd have to cough up and order a private one for a few hours to do that, which is not happening haha. Who knows maybe they'd let me, id get some awsome shots thats for sure.

Just came back from my road trip from San Diego to SF. I took CA-1 from Santa Barbara to Monterey. The scenery was great but it takes a long time if you're stuck behind a slow driver like I was.

There is also a Japanese garden in Costa Mesa. I also think that hike into Laguna hills would be cool. That one that opens on the Canyon Road and El Toro.

I like the Bay Area, the hills NW of Napa, Muir Woods, and anywhere along Hwy 1 going up the coast. Great drive in the coupe as well!
