I spent a week in Laguna Niguel (Orange County, CA) with family last week and took a few early morning rides. For the entire week it was overcast, cool and misty until noon, which made for excellent riding. Here's a few pics.
O.C. roads rule. They just do.

San Clemente pier.
Though not technically taken on a ride, the following are shots of the Montage resort in Laguna Beach, which I did ride past the day before. One of CA's top 10 hotel resorts, the entire property, beach and garden walkways are open to the public.
