Coast Starlight Train Ride: Los Angeles to Portland
Nicole here. We've just passed Paso Robles. The station is covered with white cherry blossoms. We stretched our legs at the station prior, San Luis Obispo.
Very pretty scenery to report, as expected. Weather is terrific and clear. Ocean waves crashed less then 100 feet from our tracks at some points. Green mountains to the east, not a bad view to be had in the dining room on either side of the dining room when we enjoyed lunch. We're now making our way a bit inland towards garlic country-the town of gilroy. Will be having dinner as the sun sets over the mountains.
Stay tuned for an update on sleeping situation. Marc's overpacking and decision not to check his bag has left our tiny 8'x4' room a bit tight.
