Around our Home

We live in the town of Encinitas.  It is about 20 miles (30 KM)
north of San Diego, CA.  We have some wonderful beaches
within walking distance of our home

1.  Cardiff-by-the-Sea is 2 miles south of our home and, at times, Rock Art appears on the beach almost overnight.  It lasts for a few weeks or a month and then it is gone.  In October of 2005, the rock art was especially good and we took pictures.  Watch the Vimeo Video here.

2.  Jack surfing at inside Cardiff reef on a wonderful glassy day.

3.  Skiing at Mammoth - 2010 , Building a snow cave in the RV park

4.  Big Wednesday - The first big swell of the season arrives on Dec. 5, 2007.  Swamis and Cardiff Reef were the only surfable spots.
     and, no, we didn't go out.  Watch the 5 minute video of BIG SWAMIS and see why.
5.  Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.  Great place if you like the desert and the outdoors.  80 miles from Encinitas.
6. A 10 minute walk from our house is the beach, a world class surf spot called Swamis. We train there in the summer for the Labor Day Oceanside Pier Swim - a one miler around the pier. See a training video here. Sept 1, 2014 Barb smoked Jack by 5 minutes!
