South Carlsbad State Beach is a wonderful camping site — very popular and almost impossible to get into.
I made reservations months ago for a beachside site. Here is what we see out our windows:
We have watched California Grey Whales migrate north along with pods of porpoises. The birding has been nice (Pacific Loon is a new life bird) as has been the chance to see Robb, Mary, Dane and Maeve down in Del Mar. We’ll be here several days more and then hang out in the Del Mar driveway (hookup, hot shower, great hospitality.)
