Ocean and Fence~Good Fences~032814
Yesterday morning, after breakfast, we drove back out the 101 and caught the road up past Gaviota State Beach. We didn't realize it dead ended on private property further ahead. But, the views were outstanding from the public area, including this view of the Pacific Ocean (and fence). I'm always amazed when I look out upon the Pacific Ocean and realize that nothing is out there until...Japan! From here, no, you are north of the Channel Islands, which are further south, toward Santa Barbara. Below the fence is the railroad track and Amtrak trains would be on the track a couple of times a day. Apparently this is a common spot to stop and take photos and I'll include a photo looking south, even though it doesn't have a fence! Good Fences #1 for March 28, 2014.
