So when we're down in San Diego, we make a point of going on a "little adventure" every time. We still do Legoland and The Children's Museum, but it's our little adventures that we hold near and dear. In November, we decided to check out Ocean Beach, or "OB" as the locals call it. It's a funky little beach town that time forgot. The only sign of modern times is a Starbucks that somehow made its way there-- apparently with a lot of protest from the natives. So other than Starbucks, it's pretty much an eclectic haven for beatniks, artists, surfers, activists, antiques shoppers and of course, a tourist here and there.
Supposedly the BEST burger in the world (or at least San Diego). Unfortunately the kids weren't having the 2 hour wait so we settled for a cr*ppy meal at a Mexican dive across the street. The food probably wasn't all that bad, but the memory of Smarty Pants having a full-blown meltdown and Happy Vee almost stabbing my eye out with a fork won't soon be forgotten.
So after that disastrous experience, we decided to go for a walk (best decision we made all day!)
After aimlessly walking around, we decided to head for the pier. And lucky for us, the lifeguards reopened it right as we walked up. The pier is pretty low and during high tides, the water can actually submerge the walkway. The seagulls were a little bummed that we were disturbing their naptime AND didn't bring any snacks to share.
It's a LOOOOOOOOOONG pier!
Which was a GOOD thing!
And look at this handsome fella!
I'm just going to assume he's a "fella", because I *think* he was flirting!
Look at these amazing waves!
Here comes a big one!
Ack! Yup, my camera got wet!
So I'm looking forward to our next trip to San Diego. I'm not sure what "adventure" is in store for us, but I'm sure it'll be memorable-- note to self: Don't hold Happy Vee while he is wielding a fork.
