Another Day in Ocean Beach

I love OB. It is a great place to live. Good weather, good people, good beach. It is no wonder so many homeless people choose to live here! There is rarely a dull moment here in Ocean Beach. Today, Ryan and I both had the day off, so we decided to ride our bikes over to Sea World. On our way home, we passed a small camp of homeless people. One of the homeless ladies came over to talk to me. She saw Ryan, and asked if that handsome man was my husband...not an uncommon question! Then she told me that if we ever divorce, give her a call! I just laughed and tried to hop back on my bike to take off. This is when the homeless lady tried to come in for a kiss! Now, I am not a professional bike rider, so it is typical for me to wobble a lot when I start off on any ride. Add a homeless lady trying to kiss me, and I have even more trouble with a smooth take-off. I was successful at avoiding the kiss, but as I left, she reached out and got a good handful of my butt!

OB Christmas Parade

Stay tuned... I took a ton of pics, and I can GUARANTEE the OB Parade is a true original! This is a quick sample - A man riding a dinosaur through bubbles.

It's OB Christmastime!

Today is the OB Christmas Tree Festival! This year, Ryan and I decided to make it to our local Christmas Festival rather than fight the crowds at Christmas on the Prado. The tree has been up and decorated for a few days. Beach ball ornaments, appropriate for a tree on the beach. We rode our bikes down to the festival earlier today and took a few pictures.

Isn't it beautiful?
Tree and Pier
My favorite is this one, with the pier streaching out behind the tree.

Here are some pics from our bike ride:
