It’s true, Orange County beaches are closer to us but something about Del Mar keeps us coming back year after year. Maybe it’s the warmer ocean water, the super fine sand between our toes, or the family friendly atmosphere we’ve grown to love about Del Mar? Whatever it is, we continue to head south and make the extra 20 minute drive to North County San Diego every summer.

The beach never disappoints, does it? Something about the saltwater and the beauty and power of the ocean only soothes, refreshes, and gives new vigor to the soul.

Although sometimes, we wish we lived closer to the ocean, we are thankful that we’re close enough to make a long day trip. At the end of the day, when we can come home, get cleaned up, and look out our backyard to this:

We feel nothing but blessed. Desert life has it’s own kind of peace, love, and spectacular beauty.

For Californians, the blue hues of time spent in the pool and the Pacific Ocean are musts in the summer but may we also remember to soak in and enjoy all the colors this season brings.

These pictures make me anxious to plan a trip to DelMar! Definitely a premium spot at the ocean. Love the ice-cream tradition.
