The End of Route 66

Before leaving the States, we stayed overnight at a hotel in Santa Monica.

I once stayed there when I went to Los Cabos years ago. At that time, a hurricane hit Baja California the day of my fright from LAX to Cabo San Lucas, and I was held up over LA for a day. I preferred one of Beach Cities for that I didn’t like downtown LA, decided to head to Santa Monica, and liked it.

Third St with many shops and restaurants was lively but peaceful.

I hoped all of them find a nice home.

I reserved a cabana table at Whist at the Viceroy, a red-hot restaurant in Santa Monica, in advance.

I stirred myself, got up early next morning and walked Santa Monica Pier with my friends.

I found the memorial board in the photo, and I realized it was the end of Route 66.
Route 66の記念掲示板を見つけて、ああ、ここが終着地点なのだと思い出しました。

Bob Waldmire is the most prolific and best-known artist specializing in Route 66-themed work.
Route 66, one of the most famous roads in America, originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, before ending at Los Angeles.
アメリカで最も有名なルートの1つ、Route 66は、かつてイリノイ州シカゴからミズーリ、カンサス、オクラホマ、テキサス、ニューメキシコ、アリゾナを通り、ロサンゼルス(サンタモニカはロサンゼルス郡に属します)まで延びていました。この記念掲示板はRoute 66をテーマにした作品で有名なBob Waldmireさんに因んだものらしいです。

All my knowledge of Route 66 is the jazz standard number containing many cites and states between Chicago and Los Angels in the lyrics, but I know the atmosphere of a part of it because I went on a road trip from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Phoenix, Arizona years ago. Stopped at Santa Fe, Grand Canyon and many population centers of Native American, my friend and I drove more than 2,000km (1242 miles).
Route 66と言えば、私の知識はシカゴからロスまでの様々な町や州の名前が登場する同名のジャズのスタンダードナンバー位なのですが、その道沿いの一部の雰囲気はわかります。以前、ニューメキシコ州のアルバカーキから、アリゾナ州のフェニックスまで車で旅をしたことがあるのです。サンタフェやグランドキャニオン、ネイティブアメリカンの居留区などに足を伸ばし、友人と二人で2,000キロ以上走りました。

Looking at the Pacific Ocean, I imagined Midwestern United States along the Mother Road, I’ve never been to, at the end of the trip.
