Orange County Finder #2011-04

Guess where this is, including where I'm taking the photo from.
And I promise to get back to regular posting later in the week after things settle down.


  1. I feel a little greedy for gobbling this one up too...

    Laguna Beach pier.

  2. Whoops, I meant to say Seal Beach. Proofreading fail.

    *hopes that one isn't wrong either*

  3. Nope. That's not it either.

    The key would be to figure out from where the picture was taken.

  4. Okay... I guess I can reveal that the answer was the San Clemente Pier. The clue is that this was taken from the Amtrak train, the Surfliner.

    How would one know that? Look at the odd angle of the things in the foreground. That's what happens when you use an iPhone-type device to take a picture of something while moving at a fast speed.

    The rail line hugs the coast from San Diego to just north of San Clemente, when it turns inland toward San Juan Capistrano and heads for the Orange County communities of Santa Ana, Irvine, Fullerton, and eventually Los Angeles. Thus the only pier in Orange County it passes would be the San Clemente Pier.

    I do go to Seal Beach a lot, though, since I have relatives in that part of Orange County and in Long Beach. We enjoy riding our bikes out to the pier and eating breakfast at Ruby's.
