Costa Mesa, CA

Thirty-two years of my life have been spent in Orange County and in the last ten years I've resided in the South Coast Metro / Costa Mesa area. This is my favorite place to live in the world right now. The weather is spectacular, riding season is nearly continuous, and the beach is only a four mile ride away via the river trail. Orange County may be a melting pot, it may not have architectural culture, but it does have trend setting influences.

A few days ago I met up with my friend Curtis for lunch at The Camp and rode to Period Correct, a space curating vintage Porches and race cars along with their own collection of vintage race inspired clothing. A brilliant space to visit for any automotive enthusiast and a space where I often gasp after exiting... if only I had a space like this for my beemers... #goals...

And it seems to be a ritual, we ended up at Portola Coffee at The Soco Collection to end the short afternoon ride.

Being colorblind, I asked Curtis what color this Porsche was... he said he didn't know...
