SO CALIFORNIA BEACHES – PACIFIC BEACH

Pacific Beach…  My favorite beach!  Probably because we lived about six blocks from this beach for a few years.  It’s changed.. gone are the little motels and shops that ran along the beach.  Half of Crystal Pier is banked on both sides with cabins.  Walking out on the pier it was hard to miss that there were soft boards and while I’m sure it is safe I’m not sure I’d drive my car out onto it.

This is where we went clamming in the winter months and grunion hunting in the summer.  This is where we walked on the beach, or just spent a day laying on the beach. Today we would need a valid California fishing license to go clamming and to my surprise you even need one for grunion hunting.  Despite the changes over the years, it’s still a very cool beach.
