I took the Amtrak again to San Diego — Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner goes all the way through most of Southern California to San Diego. Along the way, you get to see spectacular scenery including a seaside ride for some part of the way between San Juan Capistrano and Oceanside.
I started from Simi Valley — after a few stops, the train chugged into Los Angeles station for a half an hour halt. I found these birds on an empty rail track (see below).
Got to San Diego at 10 minutes past 3 in the afternoon, and was in the hotel by 4 pm. Met Sheila and Denise in the lobby, checked in, and then the jet lag hit me!
