Went out on the stand up board this morning on the bay. It was pretty calm.
We decided it was time to say good-bye to San Diego and move on. Said our good-byes to John and Sam.
We drove up Hwy 1 and it was scenic and pretty...a real nice break from the freeway.
We drove thu Carlsbad and Oceanside and stopped at a park in San Clemente. Most of the parks are still closed in this area due to the storms. We arrived after dark and thought we could just sneak in as the attendant was gone for the night, but we had a knock on our door at around 10:30pm with a citation delivered to us...man there are way too many rules in California. I guess there are just too many homeless people or just too many damn people in general...that they keep on top of everything. There is no boondocking anywhere!
Got up and drove to Costa Mesa so bill could get his rip curl watched fixed and do some shopping. We went back to the campground and then biked to the beach to check out the surf...both trestles and the beach at the San Clemente State Park. Bill went out surfing and I went for a run....I forgot how tough it is to run in the sand....yikes..We had our first campfire tonight! The weather if finally co-operating.
