Kickin’ It In Ocean Beach

9 01 2012

We’ve spent the past week having a chill time in Ocean Beach, a laid-back and hippie-ish part of San Diego. I’ve been really digging our time in OB, as the locals call it, but the occasional ‘city vs. beach town’ clashes are pretty striking.

OB has lots of wonderfully odd mom-and-pop shops, a strong beach culture, and the feel of a small-ish town. At the same time you constantly see and hear planes taking off from San Diego International and can sometimes catch a glimpse of the downtown skyline.

But enough of the big city vs. little city stuff. Down to business!

The First Order of Business relates to the house we parked in front of. We got a spot four blocks from the beach and Ayo decided to leave a note in our neighbor’s mailbox to introduce ourselves and convey the message that we’re not totally sketch. Litte did we know the consequences! Our neighbor’s name is Elisa and she is totally awesome, going so far as to take us on a tour of Cabrillo National Monument and Balboa Park! [Update: We’re still friends with Elisa, but we’re now two blocks from the beach and in a more solar-friendly spot.]

The Second Order of Business is that the Tally Ho clan has been in town and we’ve been hanging out! Farmer’s market, zumba class, blues dance dinner with friends. The awesome young-RVer community strikes again!

I’m not sure if I could do the beach-town thing forever, but low-70s winters where I can comfortably lay shirtless on a beach towel isn’t something I’ll just dismiss.
