A Trip To Oceanside, CA

There are two great perks about living where I do in Southern California.  The first is that the Santa Ana Mountain range is between me and all the craziness & overcrowding that is Orange and Los Angeles counties.  The second is that the snow-covered mountains as well as the Pacific Ocean are just about an hour from my house so visiting either doesn’t require a lot of planning or an overnight visit.  Nope, one can just visit for a couple hours and then go back home.


As I mentioned earlier this week, I needed some supplies from the Pacific Ocean so I took a jaunt to the beach in Oceanside, CA.  There are times when my fingers need to prattle on and on about something, and there are times when they know they should be quiet.  This post is one of the latter, so other than hit the keys to upload pictures, my fingers aren’t participating in this post.

      Thanks Roxie! When I looked at that image on my computer monitor it instantly became my favorite! To be honest though, I’m not sure who was more fascinated with the bubbles – the baby, the photographer or the hoards of people I kept out of my frame :-)
