The past few days we stayed at a hotel in Newport Beach. While it wasn't directly near the ocean, we did make a trip to the pier one day and drove the coast one afternoon and we were close enough to feel the sea breeze and smell the ocean air.
In the last few years, we've taken up camping at a State Campground on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We're looking forward to camping over Memorial Day Weekend and then again in July. In July, we'll have an entire week of being near the ocean and hearing the roar of the waves nightly as we sleep in our tent.
And then there is Pismo Beach. If you're family or a good friend, you'll know that Pismo Beach has been a family vacation spot for many, many years. Our family has been making that trek for over 20 years. Definitely holds a special place in all our memories and hearts.
I could definitely go for living near the ocean. I love the smell and the sea breeze. I love that when I'm in the element of the salty sea air, my sinuses don't bother me. I'm ready to go back, who's up for a day trip??
