I'm not a beach guy. However, I found out that if I rent a big house ON the beach with a lot of bedrooms, bathrooms and a pool, my kids along with their spouses and kids, my father, and my wife's mother will all show up.
I get to see everyone once a year, the kids are pretty much self-entertaining, the women have each other to go shopping with, and I get to take as many naps as I want. We grill out at the beach house half the time; the rest of the time we go out to eat or order pizza. At least one night I take the kids out for ice cream.
Like I said, I'm not a beach guy - but for some reason I really like the beach. :)

Sounds like fun you lucky sons of a beach!

Don't know how you get in the water at this time of year, even in San Diego. It has to be mid 60's, which is a bit chilly for my taste.
Still, you're enjoying what most will never experience, savor every moment.

It's been 58 all winter and just last weekend crossed over to 60 (ish.) It's not really that cold, but a 3/4 Stearns wetsuit helps. Saturday was freaking awesome. :-)
Last October I was at Torrey Pines and the dolphins were doing a mating dance about 30 feet offshore from where I was playing. They got closer and closer, I could see them through the waves, then one breached about 6 feet offshore from me then wiggled his (or her) tail out of the water at me as if to say, "betcha wish you had one of these!" That was the most awesome moment so far this year. :-)

I've seen plenty of dolphins at Hilton Head Island (East Coast) but they've never wiggled anything at me.

I've learned never to swim behind and below a dolphin. Even if you tell yourself it's just processed fish, still...

That's why everyone here has to do yoga every day, eat lawn clippings as their salads, and put organic broccoli and tofu on their pizzas. Seriously, between the threat of toxic beaches, Bluetooth cancer, and sunburn from sitting in the freeway parking lot all day with the convertible top down (and don't get me started on earthquakes!), it's just not a safe place to live.
Most of the people should just leave. Um, for health reasons. A few of us risk takers will make the ultimate sacrifice and stick around to keep things running for the tourists. :)

Uh huh. I used to live in Oregon and guess what, the air inversion there is so bad the smog is 2X as bad as San Francisco on any given day. Yet they brag about "clean air."
I'll take the "dirty" water. Good enough for our planet co-habitants (ocean creatures,) good enough for me.
