One of the main things promised to the girls was a walk out on the Oceanside Pier for lunch at Ruby's that sits right at the end of the pier. Early reports predicted rain on Sunday so we were a bit concerned about the plans, but the rain was gone by Saturday morning. What came instead of the rain was incredibly cold weather. For anyone reading this on the east coast, forgive my description of cold. I realize that weather in the low 50s is short and t-shirt season for you!! But for those of us in southern CA, when it hits 33 at night and 55 in the day for a high, that is truly COLD for us!!
The skies were cloudy and it is always windier at the ocean, so we were bundled up for our mile walk out. Usually there are a lot of people fishing, but there were just a few. The day had a bit of a treacherous look about it.
And then there were the winged visitors.... not sure who was checking whom out!!

|Someone said this was an egret - I thought they were larger!!|
And there is always the one who wants to entertain the crowd.
Lunch was great fun with burgers and milkshakes (the girls indulged - Haley had a double vanilla milkshake and Kendra had a Shirley Temple milkshake (imagine cherry vanilla). SO much fun.
The walk back was uneventful - more dodging of birds and the sun was beginning to creep out from behind the clouds.....
Here is a closeup of the sign...
It was a glorious day, yummy food and the most wonderful memories ever. Hope you enjoyed a bit of not so sunny California!
