My true destination for the day. This is an old spiral staircase that leads down to the beach from the bluff and home above. A gate keeps people out and it does not look too safe but it is a marvelous bit of architecture to provide a focal point at this beach.

    WOW!! I want to shoot this! Where is it? I have never heard of Victoria Beach.

    Is it in the O.C.? I WANT TO GO THERE!!

    MAGNIFICENT shot, Mark!!

  • Laguna Beach, look for Victoria drive, find a place to park near the beach access stairs, (not easy) the go down and look towards the bluff and it is on the other side of that, if you descend just to the south of it. The Street is about 3/4s of a mile south of the Laguna Canyon intersection with Coast Highway. (I think ???)
