Beach Trip Traditions

Ok, first off, I completely forgot the camera for this trip (just be happy I remembered clean clothes -it was a very rushed morning of packing). Enter: Instagram.

Every summer, my mom, sister, and I visit Oceanside, CA for a relaxing, bonding, good time. Ok, the word "bonding" is weirding me out. Basically, we just have fun and do the exact same things each time we go. On our first trip, we just made a lot of good choices, so now we follow suit every summer.

First, the snacks. No trip would be complete without some form of gummies, red vines, Albertson's cookies, and chocolate. This summer, Mom decided she wanted to be healthy, and it almost ruined everything... until we guilted her into buying all of the aforementioned goodies anyway.

We stay at the same place every summer. It's right on the beach, so I get to hear the ocean all night long as I drift to sleeeeeeeep.

The view from our front door. See, told you it was right on the beach.

My mom loves taking walks. Occasionally we join her (most of the time, she's just too fast, though). But when we do join, we always hit up the pier. On this trip, I made a new friend!


 Another tradition we've stuck with from the beginning has been our choice of restaurant. We always go to the same Thai food restaurant and the same pizza restaurant. We branched out one time, and it was no bueno. This time, while at the Thai restaurant, we ran into some friends from home. Random!



We always spend the majority of our time relaxing on the beach. And let's not forget the never-fail-tradition of me getting horribly sunburned. Happens. Every. Year. When will I learn?

Until next year, sea breezes and crashing waves.

    1. The Thai place is called Ocean Thai and it's on Mission Blvd (I think), and the pizza place is called Fratelli's and I think it's right by an Albertsons. Have so much fun!!!

  3. Instagram is the live saver of all people who can barely keep up with their lives to remember to have their camera attached to their hip every second. Love the photos!

  6. Love the pictures! Send them to me, OK? As an old fogey, I have to say, I can't get over how great the pictures are that you can take with your phone! Actually, I'm still trying to get used to fact that we can even take pictures with our phones.
