It took us 10 hours to get from Greenfield to Oceanside! That should normally take between five and seven hours, but LA traffic was so terrible! We happened to hit it right at rush hour and I think it took us 2+ hours to get through the city.
We finally made it to Paradise by the Sea RV Resort in Oceanside. Really nice place!
We took a Lego Ninjago character hone with us! This is his Halloween costume this year.
The new LEGO Ninjago movie came out, so Carla found a neat theater for us to go to!
I was a packed theater!!! 😁 Love the swing out tables!!
The Coaster and Surfliner trains go near the RV park, but they really aren’t too loud and they stop running around 10pm. We thought it would be fun to take one into Dan Diego and eat at the Old Spaghetti Factory!
Here is what the Coaster looks like (not my photo):
We got off the train at the Sante Fe station downtown San Diego and walked about 20 minutes to Spaghetti Factory.
We made caramel apples one night. They were SO GOOD!
We bought a bodyboard and I tried it out at Carlsbad Beach. It was pretty fun! The waves were breaking really quickly due to a steep drop off in the sand and they didn’t last long, so you couldn’t ride them very far. Farther south was another beach (North Ponto Beach) where there were TONS of surfers and bodyboarders and the waves would last a lot longer, but we wanted a less crowded area. It was a fun Friday afternoon, though!
We ended our time in California by eating Kong’s Fish House, a place we ate at last year and loved. I had never noticed that Willapa Bay was on their list of places we think they get their seafood from.
Willapa Bay in the images below.
The food is so good here!!
