Ocean Beach

Around the corner from our place, there’s a beach I mentioned in a previous post, Ocean Beach. Pretty creative name, I know. Despite the name, it’s a beautiful beach place you can surf, snorkel, tramp, or just relax on the white sand. Like most places around here, we often have the beach to ourselves.

The first time we visited we wanted a good view of the surrounding area, so we tramped up the mountain behind Ocean Beach. The path was steep (as always) and wide open, giving us plenty of photo opportunities on the way up.

It was a hot day, and we were pouring sweat by the time we reached the summit.

If the weather is nice and we have no other plans, we usually head to Ocean Beach for a few hours. Ben has found a couple of good snorkeling spots and is enjoying his explorations there.
