Every year my daughter and her kids take a trip on our birthdays. Dustin, Lesa and I have our birthday in November and Court is 10/28. So this time of year is perfect for us to do something fun as our big birthday present. We do tend to gravitate to the ocean and this year was no exception.
On Friday after the kids returned from their event (which they found and had a good time with their friend) we hopped in the car and headed to the beach. We found Oceanside to be a very nice community. We thought maybe in summer it would probably be totally touristie because of the evidence of the condos/townhouses for rent on the beach. These condos stretched for miles. However, we enjoyed the laid back life of the town.
We parked down by the jetty and marina and walked clear to the pier. Lesa’s workout program said we walked about 4 miles and our bodies that night agreed, especially our feet.
The pier juts out into the ocean with Ruby’s Restaurant at the very end. We didn’t walk down the pier but did go up top to watch the surfers try to get maybe 5 seconds on a small wave. We later learned some surfers were having a class.
We did cruise town and we found a Farmers Market. There were a couple of blocks of street blocked off for food vendors and anything you can think of vendors.Yet, there were only two tables of fresh veggies and fruits! Courtnay found a pair Snookie sunglasses.
Many bikers were out the day we left on some ride. Dale would have joined them if he was with us.
I would like to come back here for a while and soak up what this community enjoys year round!
This is our last birthday trip for the next 3 or 4 years because the kids are moving to Germany in April of next year.
Life is good. 7 more sleeps until I see my hubby again. Then back home to the RV and the folks.
