Near Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, the town just to the south of Carlsbad. We got lunch at a great diner, then went to the art supply store, where we met the lovely owners. Followed that with ice cream cones (three scoops of Mocha Madness! and they call it a single scoop!) which we took with us as we walked to the beach, sat on a bench in the sun, and watched a volleyball game, birds, and children playing.
The joys of a SoCal beach town in mid-November. I’d like only two more things: rain and progressive government, one provided by nature and the other provided by our better nature. If only.
