Newport Beach, California


時間があったので、夕方Balboa Islandからフェリーに乗り対岸のNewport Beachへクルーズしました。
We had spare time so in the evening we took a ferry from Balboa Island across to the other side of Newport Beach for a cruise.

狭い道で順番を待つこと数十分、やっとフェリーに乗れました。フェリーと言っても車3台と人を運ぶこの様な簡単な渡り船です。所要時間は5分少々、料金は車プラス乗員3名で$4安いですが船上からの景色はさすがNewport Beach最高です。
Finally got on the ferry after waiting on a narrow street for the dozens in line. Although I call it a ferry, it can only transport three cars plus people at a time. It was a 5 minute ride and cost just $4 for the car and 3 people, but the view of Newport Beach are spectacular.

まもなく対岸に到着
On the other side where we got off the ferry

フェリーのゲートがあがると対向車線には戻りのフェリーに乗る車が列を作っていました。
The gate was risen, you could see all the cars lined up waiting to board and go back.


何気に不安なフェリーを下船し、Newport Beach ピア近くのCrab Cookerと言うレストランへ行きました。名前の通りWildmanの好きなカニを食しに来たのです。
It was a strange feeling to leave the ferry and come ashore. We headed to a restaurant called Crab Cooker which is located near the Newport Beach pier. Just as the name indicates, they serve Wildman’s favorite, crab, and the reason we went there.

人気店なので何時も長い列が出来ています。外のイスで順番を待つうちにだんだん日も沈んで夕暮れになって来ました。
It’s a very popular restaurant and any time you go there’s a long line. People sit and wait outside in line and while waiting the evening turned to twilight.

待つこと30分、名前が呼ばれ店内に入ると中はこんなこんな感じです。席に着いた時には外はすでに暗くなっていました。
We waited 30 minutes and our name was called. This was the scene as we entered the restaurant. When we got to our seat, outside was already dark.

この光の感じとか空気とか、とにかくこの雰囲気の中で車をみるとデーンと車の存在感がありますね。
The lighting, the aroma in the air, overall the atmosphere, it would be cool to see a nice classic car in this picture.

何と反対側には56 Chevyがパークして来ました何か出来すぎですね。でもカッコいい!と感動していると食事が運ばれてきました。面白い事にここはペーパー皿、プラスティックのコップやシルバーなのです。ぜんぶ使い捨てです。
What do we see, on the opposite side of the street was a ’56 Chevy parked making the scene look overdone. But so cool! As I was really getting into the views our dinner was brought to our table. An interesting thing about this place is they use paper plates, plastic cups and utensils. All of it is disposable.

まずShrimp & Crabカクテル、そして一番のお勧めはトマトベースのクラムチャウダー、マンハタンクラムチャウダーです。これは旨い!
First, Shrimp & Crab Cocktail, then the most recommended Tomato Base Clam Chowder, Manhattan Clam Chowder. This tastes great!
 
金曜日はクラムチャウダー、でもこの日は日曜日でした。奥がスープで手前はビール、
Clam Chowder on Fridays, but it was Sunday. In the back is soup and in front is beer.

そしてメインデイッシュは、アラスカキングクラブの爪だけの一皿と足の部分
Then the main dish, Alaska King Crab claws on one plate and legs on another.

そして僕はHalibut(オヒョウ?)を頂きました。
For me, I had Halibut.

でっかいカニがサーブされ大喜びのWildman
The huge order of crab that was ordered made Wildman really excited and happy.

しかしカニをばらし出すと笑顔どころではなく真剣そのもの、なぜ人はカニをばらす時は無口になり真剣にカニと格闘するのでしょうか?
But his face turned serious when he began to eat. Why is it when people eat crab they look so serious and don’t talk much like they are in a scuffle with the crab?

そして中身が出て来始めるとこの笑顔に戻ります。僕はこの二面性がどうも理解できないので人前ではカニを好んでは食べません。それとまず面倒ですよね。
Once the inside meat starts to come out, the happy face returns.

おいしいDinnerも終わり、外に出てみたら真っ暗でした。5月だと言うのにNewport Beachの夜は結構寒かったです。
After finishing the delicious dinner, it was pitch black outside. Although it’s May in Newport Beach, night time was rather cold.

16日&17日(土日)、Area-1 MOON GarageでMOONEYESが制作した国産車、デボネアベースのMOON Glow、グロリアベースのGlory Rod、そしてCrown Pick UpにChevy V-8を積んだCrown V-8を開店23周年記念に展示します。
どうぞお出かけください。
On the 16th & 17th, at A-1 MOON Garage, there will be three domestic cars built by MOONEYES on display. The Debonair “MOON Glow”, Gloria “Glory Rod” and finally the Crown Pick Up with a Chevy V-8 will be there to celebrate the 23rd anniversary of the shop opening. By all means, please be sure to stop by for a visit.
