California Coastline

A man, a helicopter and a digital camera: those three elements combine to create one of the most engrossing sites on the Web. There's nothing fancy about California Coastline's execution or interface. The site is simply what it claims to be: 10,000 up-close-and-personal aerial shots of the entire 1,000-mile-long coast. You can see everything from Barbra Streisand's Malibu backyard to the best secret surf spots the state has to offer just past the off-limits Vandenberg Air Force Base. The site is catnip for daydream-prone cubicle dwellers, though it's definitely NSFW.
