We leave LA on 27th and make our way up the coast. My planned lunch stop also doubled as birding. There is an excellent beach restaurant here and it was jam packed on a Friday lunch time, so clearly a good choice. The first bird I saw was an acorn woodpecker, but I have better shots from another day.
