You'll rarely see Mission Beach in San Diego looking this empty. If you do, you either got there at the crack of dawn, or went there on a cold rainy day.
We went there in early March on what turned out to be a beautiful day; these photos were snapped between crowds of people enjoying the beautiful weather just like we were.
Apart from Coronado, another place we really like to visit in SoCal is Encinitas. This small town is truly beachy with its peaceful and relaxed mood. The beachgoers and surfers everywhere validate the statement above.
We like to go to Encinitas when we want to run away from traffic and crowds. Call us creatures of habit but we usually visit the same places here over and over.
