Train travel is criminally underused in this country, if you ask me. But there’s a beautiful Amtrak trip here in Southern California that I’ve taken a few times on my journeys to Anaheim, Los Angeles, and Glendale. It’s the Pacific Surfliner, and while it takes a while to get there (longer than a car ride, unless there’s crazy traffic and let’s face it … in Southern California there’s ALWAYS crazy traffic), it’s a beautiful trip … for the most part. Then it segues inland and industrial areas and it’s distinctly pretty blah. But from San Diego to about Anaheim, it’s right along the Pacific Ocean and occasionally you see images like the one above, a lonely lifeguard station sitting quietly vigilant by the water. And there’s lots and lots of palm trees, too.
