Springtime Drivin'

Yet another Spring day in Southern California, so I just had to get the Daytona Coupe out for a drive. It's just way too nice!

Stopped for a few photos in Rancho Palos Verdes (RPV) and The Wayfarer's Chapel. That rocky point in the distance is known as Portuguese Bend. The name comes from the whaling activities of Portuguese whalemen from the Azores. The whaling operation at Portuguese Bend lasted from 1874 to 1877.

Portuguese Bend is also the location of a modern landslide that's been constantly moving since 1956, accelerated by road construction. Slippage in this area is said to date back 250,000 years. Who knew!

The Wayfarer's Chapel is an RPV landmark that's also adjacent to Portuguese Bend. It's also known as "The Glass Church". Wayfarer's Chapel is noted for its unique modern architecture and location on cliffs above the Pacific Ocean. The church was designed by Lloyd Wright (son of Frank Lloyd Wright) in the late 1940s and was built between 1949 and 1951.

That cross in the background trees is atop the 'steeple' of the Chapel.

Here, you can see why it's called "The Glass Church"!

Besides the beautiful day, terrific Springtime weather, and sensational drive, the Daytona is running A W E S O M E L Y ! It's a blast to drive, makes unimaginable horsepower and torque, and it's blessed with great driveability with the fully-sorted Weber 48's!
