    Ha! The campground is called South Carlsbad State Beach. It's about 20 minutes outside of San Diego. First time there for me... not the greatest campground (road noise and close neighbors) but the view is hard to beat.

    That is beautiful. I would love to find a camp right on the water like that. Thanks for sharing. I can just see myself sitting in those chairs soaking it all in. I have to live through photos like this to get me through the winter.

    I'm thinking of two.....could they be the same fingers on different hands? And they are an envious shade of green....
    Since the closest beach camping is about 5 hours away, and a forecast for teens this weekend...
    guess I'll just have to do it the old fashion way.

    Why is there a fence behind your camper? Would be awesome if you had access to that beach. Is that a southern Cali thing? You will have to excuse my ignorance, I live in Southern Illinois. Only fences around here are for livestock.

    Been at San Diego, that fence keeps people from falling off the cliff. Its almost all cliff from south of Los Angles to San Diego.

    The cliffs along this stretch of the coast are made of sandstone and are very unstable. The fences keep people from trying to climb down the cliff face and eroding the surface. There is a similar beach further south called Blacks Beach that has no fence. About once or twice a year the lifeguards need to make a cliff rescue for people that get stranded halfway up or down. It was a nude beach, so I always wondered who was sneaking down there and how many marriages were ruined when the evening news showed up to cover the event.

    I suppose the fence is also useful at keeping whales and sharks out. :)

    That is one of the great things about living in N/W Fl. panhandle, it does get cold once in a while 28 tonite for a couple of hours, but will warm right back up tomorrow. I really do not have to winterize and we can (and do) camp any time we want. In fact good weather for a canoe camping trip coming up shortly.. Cannot and do not like the snow and ice, been there and done that a few times while in the Navy.
