Weekend Out and about Near the Beaches

Over the weekend we had the chance to have friends and family come by the Roadrunner while we are at Camp Pendleton's Del Mar beach recreation area campground.Leslie and Ben were able to stay a couple of hours and then Reid and Amy came by. We got in a couple of games of 'ladderball' before they headed up to Whittier, CA.

After they left, Rob and Chris (with her friend Allison), Elena and Marty, and Matt came by. We had a few more games of ladderball and lit a campfire.We had enough left overs from New Year's Eve and had dinner in the Roadrunner.On Saturday we took it easy in the morning, filled our small propane tank, then went over to Chris and Rob's. It was a nice afternoon, so we walked from their house down to Del Mar for some coffee and then on to the park.
We watched the sun set and got some good photos.At the park above the beach at Del Mar looking down the coast...
Another beautiful sunset.

It got a little cool after the sun went down and we made our way up the hill from the beach to Rob's house.
Del Mar is a very pretty little town on the Coastal Highway.

We had dinner, played a couple of rounds of 'Apples to Apples' and then went back to our campsite before it got too late.

It was another great day seeing family and friends. Hope you are having a good holiday too and thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles.


  1. It's great to have your family and friends with you to enjoy those good times during the holidays. That beach sure looks like a nice spot.

  2. How nice to be with your family & friends for the Holidays... And as for the beach I love it!!! Hopefully we can stop there next fall on our way down the coast. Have a super week and travel safely!
    Happy New Year

  3. GREAT PICS. Ladder Ball? Vote for the strongest name - I've seen the same game called "Bongo Ball", "Blongo Ball", "Monkey Balls". Hmmmm, I know which one I'd vote for. Glad you're having a great beachie get away.
