I Love Orange County In The Springtime

From Chapman in Orange to San Pedro

From Chapman in Orange to San Pedro

At last, spring has come to Orange County! I allowed those two terrible months of cold weather (I had ice on my car!!!), but now it’s time to get back to the best reason to live in Southern California……warm, sunny, beautiful days like this one. As I drove over the hill to Santiago Canyon College for some school stuff, I could see it was gong to be a beautifully clear day. I just hoped it would stick around long enough for me to take some pics. As you can tell, it did.

As soon as I finished my clinical work, I sprinted up to Orange Hill Restaurant. Not for their lackluster food, but for the view they have of the entire North County area. It’s easy to forget just how close to the ocean we all are here, thanks to traffic, wonky streets and freeways and the flat land. But as you can see, we’re really not too far at all.

I took some more pics, which you can see after the jump —–>

Look folks! Catalina!

Look. Still Catalina!

Look. Still Catalina!

Ooh. North County melting under the sun.

    Lovely pictures Dave! It makes me want to journey 26 miles across the sea and drink the night away!
