I'll be back again!!
To Carlesbad that is. This is my 2nd time to Carlesbad. The first time was for a guys only family trip last year for the lack-luster performance of Utah vs UCLA football game. So this year I decided to take the wife and kids. Where do I start with the highlights?
Vegged out on the clean sandy beach with perfect boogie boarding waves.
Watched awesome sunsets with the family.
Drooled over wave after wave of road cyclists as they cruised by our hotel in groups of 10-20 every 2-3 minutes. (Where did they all come from, I have never seen this many).
Actually took my bike out and put some miles in as well on the new Tarmac. !!! No wonder everyone rides out here. Riding along the coast is pretty cool!
Collected seashells with the wife and kids.
Built sandcastles with the kids and destroyed them.
Ate awesome pizza from the Pizza Port. (Or as wife would say "Pick-up a date port")
Excellent Mexican place called Pollo's Maria.
Visited the Wild Animal Park!! Kids loved the animal merry-go-round. Lions were cool. No crowds.
Rode my bike some more along the coast. Realized I was riding with a group that were riding in the MS150.
Watched Fletch in the hotel room.
Stayed across the street form the beach in a 2 star hotel with a 4 star location, staff and breakfast. Surf Motel!!
Avoided all heavy traffic driving home.
Yeah plans for next spriing are in the works!!
