Last week we rode the Coaster Train between San Diego and Oceanside, CA. It's one of Max's and my favorite excursions. I made a short movie of our first trip in 2009. To begin with, the train is painted my favorite color, and very few vehicles are. The seats are comfortable. You can sit high up and eat at a little table as you ride.
We passed lagoons, dunes and beach towns. From the Coaster Train, it's a beautiful world, and everyone is doing okay. In some sense, there's nothing going on out there, but it's wonderfully relaxing to watch, as it drifts past.
