After our adventures at Legoland, we were pretty sure we’d need a day to lay low and recoup, so we planned a 2-night stay at South Carlsbad State Beach, which is literally a 10 minute drive from Legoland.
It was not much of a campground, but the views….
We had a spectacular day on the beach, watching whales spout on their way south, watching pelicans skim the surface of the waves, watching surfers, and even a couple of pods of dolphins frolic in the surf.
Charlie and Flora gleefully spent the afternoon sitting in the surf, chasing it, running from it, splashing in it, and enjoying the warm sunshine.
The tide was high in the morning, so we finished homework for the day before heading down to the beach.
