So today was a good day to go somewhere. We didn't go far, just to Carlsbad Premium Outlets, which is a big shopping center with mostly pricy shops. Randy was able to find some tennis shoes there, which was nice; he has a terrible time finding shoes that fit. We celebrated with pizza at Blaze Pizza. Haven't been here before but we will probably come back. A pizza is large enough for us to share but not too big, and they build it on the same lines as Subway Sandwiches. You order a pizza type (meat eaters for us!) then add whatever free toppings you like. This works really well for us because Randy and I like different things on our pizza. It's not hard to see which half is his.
Carlsbad, like Oceanside, is built along a beach. So to the beach! The trees on the walkway have been shaped by the never-ending wind coming off the sea. The city keeps them trimmed down, so they don't fall over.
The sand on this beach doesn't have black sand mixed in, like Oceanside beach, but it's still wonderful. The endless sound of the waves, the sun on the water - a beach is the most relaxing place in the world.
