Even someone who doesn’t mind being holed up in the apartment likes to get out once in a while. The traffic was still congested for Monday, but it was all worth it when I arrived to my destination of Huntington Beach. There’s nothing better than visiting any beach in California. It was even better I didn’t have to drive.
Huntington Beach is known for its great surfing weather, and aptly named Surf City. It was a perfect combination of breezy and sunny with a high of 68 degrees Celsius this day. I put my feet in the Pacific Ocean and felt the coolness of it not be as shocking as minutes ticked by.
I held tiny clams in my hands, which left them slimy long after they left. I took pictures of surfers that didn’t turn out. I took videos of the tide coming and going. I was amazed at the power of the waves and how it eroded the sand underneath my feet. I laid on the dry sand soaking up the sun. I walked the pier and saw signs not to fish for Great White Sharks. It was a relaxing day from start to finish.
Everything must come to an end and so I left HB as it was getting chillier. Until the next time and until more pictures, and hopefully less blurry and without a FedEx truck, I hope to do this again soon but at a different CA beach.
