Sano - 52 Project - Week 40

"Summer time and the living is easy" holds no truer than here at San Onofre State beach. A 3,000 acre state park located in San Diego, California.  With over 2.5 million visitors per year, it is one of the 5 most visited parks in California, hosting Swimmers, campers, kayakers, fisherman, off duty Marines, sunbathers, surfers and the sacred Native American Site of Panhe. Along this 3.5 miles of state beach are included some of the best surf spots in California: Trails, Surf beach (which has 3 breaks - The point, Old Mans & Dog Patch), Church and the World famous Trestles. 

While I visit San Onofre all year long, nothing beats Summer days down here. Especially at Surf Beach. Its like a time warp back to that 50s,  Gidget surf era. You are welcomed with smiling faces from young groms to Old men that have been surfing here since the 50s. Campers are bbqing. long boards spread out all over the ocean and beach alike. VW buses, bugs, other classic surf cars to todays luxury rides with soft racks or vans fully loaded with anything you need to go off the map for a few weeks. Reggae & classic rock playing as surfers take multiple sessions in and out of the water.

Drop in on someones wave here? no problem, Every wave can be considered a party wave and no one here tends to be upset, rather they'll throw up a "shaka" at you. As the sun sets in Sano the bonfires light up until 10 pm when everyones is kicked out till the next day.

My ideal Summer days are spent like this, friends, surfing, and bbqing. Sano Days are the best days
