President's Camping Trips

I get two long weekends in February thanks to Presidents Washington and Lincoln. Sherry only gets one, so I got to spend the first holiday weekend in February camping at Doheny State Beach with my Mom. We had space 40 which has a great view of the sunset and the estuary where San Juan Creek meets the Pacific Ocean. This incredible view was snapped with my cell phone from our campffire ring. Great spot and a great trip with just me and my Mom.

For the second holiday weekend, we spent two nights at San Elijo State Beach. It is a bit of a drive (about 100 miles each way), but there is so much to love about the place. We always enjoy at least one awesome meal at Bull Taco. This time it was tater tots and carne asada. Think of it like nachos with tater tots instead of chips. We always make a point of shopping in the Solana Beach Cedros District and the Farmer's Market on Sunday afternoon. Sherry has a couple favorite yarn shops in nearby Encinitas and the beach is a great spot for her knitting.
