Felt like getting out of Venice the other weekend for a day trip up the California coast.
If you have never taken the Pacific Coast Highway north from Santa Monica into Oxnard, I highly recommend it. For about 45 minutes, you find yourself driving directly adjacent to the coastal mountains while passing by biker bars and secret surf spots.
Could possibly be one of the most scenic drives in the state - next to Big Sur of course.
I am lucky enough to frequent this drive often, as I grew up in Oxnard and take this route every time I go home to see my folks. Stay away from those freeways as much as possible!
Also been messing around with a new Nikon D90 lately so these pictures tell more of a story than I ever could.
All these photos were taken during the weekend stay at my parents house as well as on the side of the California Highway 1.
Hope you enjoy..
