We moved the Tincan over to South Carlsbad State Beach Campground just north of San Diego. We are perched on a bluff above the beach.
On the inside looking out.
Access to the beach is by way of an impressive set of stairs.
Low tide has been arriving in the early evening and has made walking the beach difficult but not impossible.
Our search for walkable sand beaches lead us to Oceanside, just up the coast highway.
The fishing pier gives you a great perch for watching the surfers.
The pier also lets you get an up close view of the locals.
We also made our way to the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park in Carlsbad. Those of you of a certain age will remember that Leo Carrillo was the actor who played Pancho in the 1950’s TV series “The Cisco Kid”.
Leo started restoring this 1868 homestead in 1937.

It’s not always sunny in Southern California. It can be grey and wet in January.
Where is everyone?
This sunset started nicely but progressed quickly to the sublime.
