West coast traffic
No one can dispute the beauty of the West coast with its tropical summer breezes and perfect weather...cool mornings, sunny afternoons and low humidity.
We always like to take a drive down to Malibu and try new eating establishments while we are here. The road to the ocean is a winding one through the caverns and mountains and usually takes only about 20 minutes to get to the other side.
It's all about what time you attempt to travel in this part of the country. The early mornings are busy with traffic, early evening is usually better before people return to their homes. We must have hit the wrong time to travel. We spent 20 minutes to get to our destination and almost 3 hours to return with 5 mph traffic crawling the whole way home.
The Los Angeles area has much beauty to offer, great weather and great food but oh the traffic.
I have little patience for this any longer, having lived out here many years ago we learned to tolerate it but I was also in my 20's at the time. It is such a huge waste of time and life to sit in a car for that many hours to get to a location that is only 15 miles away. That's why if I ever return to this area it will be for only a partial year.
Life is too short to spend it in lines of traffic any longer.
