I know SuperBowl Sunday is not suppose to be spent at the beach. But we aren't big Seahawks and Patriot fans. I bribed Z to ride along to Camp Pendleton with me. I needed to go to the commissary for our monthly haul. Yes, we still buy our groceries on base. I have done the math every which way and if you buy a lot of stuff, the commissary is the way to go. I also like to get books at the base library. I find Camp Pendleton library has a better selection of books than our city library. I also like that it's quiet... and the people are nicer.
Once you get to the front gate of base, you can't hardly help but go down to Del Mar Beach. The best beach in California! The beach is empty when it's not summer. And there is plenty of parking. If you live near an ocean, then you know these are big wins for a beach. Z and I took an hour and walked the shoreline. I love going to the beach in winter. There is a enough of a chill in the air but the sun is still warm. All these beautiful views on a Sunday afternoon has me feeling like I hit the reset button. Recharged and ready for another work week! The beach is definitely my happy place.
