Migratory Path of Two Michigan Snowbirds Part 6

A hiking partner on our Batiquitos Lagoon Walk in Carlsbad.

We would walk one direction until we ran into a barrier and turn around. This it the view from the Oceanside Harbor.
If we gauged the time correctly there is always a show.
And, each new day the dudes were out by the pier surfing. (Photo by ‘Murf The Surf’ an old semi-famous surfer photographer we met on the beach one day.)

It would not be a stretch to say that the main reason we came to Oceanside is because it’s approximate location to our kids and grandkids who are up in Big Bear. Daughter-in-law Amy and granddaughter Haley came down to see us one day.

VetTix came through with tickets to another event. We drove up to Anaheim to the spectacular Honda Center to watch our old team, The Colorado Avalanche win one on the road against the Anaheim Ducks.

Denise was in front of me as we climbed up the stairs to find our seats. Aha! The very last row and we were the only ones that were in our area.
Hockey stadiums like most sports vensues have became a contest of special effects as much as a game.

Denise insisted that we have a place with a full kitchen so we could avoid restaurants and so that she could keep on baking sourdough creations. In her first attempt in a strange kitchen with a different stove – Boyhowdy it was outrageously good.

I need to walk 4 – 5 miles each day or I would blow up like that dough boy.

We needed more adventures so we headed north to Capistrano Beach close to Dana Point.

Walking along the beach we spotted a squadron of pelicans diving for a school of fish. They would circle and follow the fish then dive head first into the waves.
Doesn’t that hurt?

Each day is better than the day before. I am grateful for the blessings we have lived for the past 52 years.
