Galloping Along the Beach to Union Station in Los Angeles, CA
Time is a measure of distance, yet time is lost traversing the iron horse conduit from San Diego to Los Angeles Union Station. Soft shimmies and shakes will massage you in your seat aboard the northbound Surfliner. You will watch blurred vistas of muted shades of brown and green whiz by under blue-gray clouds. Between Trestles Beach and San Clemente Pier you can wave back to beachcombers and surfers. Miles are marked by the sounds of the trackety track and horn toots: long, long, short, long, played with Doppler affected clanging bells. You may see urban sprawl and industrial backsides, but what you will remember most is leaving through your exit portal, historic Union Station.
