: Hello... I just found this message board today while searching for information about driving PCH 1. I'm planning pretty far in advance here, but am looking to visit San Diego and L.A. in September, 2004. I have an ambitious plan for Friday, September 10th. I want to drive from San Diego to about Laguna along the coast. Then I'll get on the Freeway until about Santa Monica and cut back over to PCH 1. Want to drive along the coast to Malibu. I've heard the scenery from Mulholland drive to the sea is spectucular. Will I have time to also drive the length of Mulholland drive to West Hollywood... all this in one day, stopping only for lunch and dinner and a few picture stops along the way? I just don't have an understanding for length of time this would take.

: Thanks for any advice you can give me... appreciate it!

: Sandi
