We arrived at Del Mar Beach aboard Camp Pendleton on Monday and spent a glorious afternoon on the beach. The kids boogie boarded and played in the sand and boogie boarded some more.
When they got out of the water the final time, they both requested to be buried in the sand because they were cold. This proves you can take a desert rat out of the desert but you can't take the desert out of them. They love the beach but will always, always, always prefer the river.
My view, getting plenty of time to relax and READ. My favorite beach activity:
After meeting up with Cruz and Tara and checking in to our beach cottage, we cleaned as much of the sand off as we could and headed up the coast to my absolute favorite restaurant, which was a weekly outing for Joe and I back in the days when we called Camp Pendleton home.
Once back at the cottage, we were joined by the Miller family and had a bonfire on the beach complete with drinks for the adults and S'mores for the kids. It was a great start to our mini-vacay.
