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.
