California Blogging, Part 3

Ok we drove up to Long Beach from San Diego yesterday along the coastal highway. What we saw can be summed up in two words: surfers and cyclists. It was a hazy saturday and air and temperatures were easily in the 50s but that didn't keep the Californians from enjoying their weekend. I can't tell you how many times we saw the same scene. Car parked on the side of the coastal road, surfer carrying board to car, surfer covering him/herself with a towel, surfer slithering out of wet suit. Also hundreds of cyclists in their Lance Armstrong look-a-like-garb. All as if to mock my fat ass. Anyway we passed through Del Mar, Oceanside, San Clemente, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, etc, etc.

One of the photos looks like you were near where I live. Surfing is almost a rite of passage here in So Cal. Growing up, I tried my hand at it as did my kids. Salt water and sand, nothing like it. I hope you and the Mrs are having a great time.
