a very cool, very funky/artsy/friendly beach town near carlsbad. i had an amazing breakfast at a cafe called st. germain (where $10.37 gets you a big omlette, fruit, muffin & coffee!) and then wandered around all the little shops and boutiques.
i discovered soul scape, http://www.soulscapeonline.com/ which was full of indian, asian & new age books, art and gifts. coast highway traders--my favorite from last trip--did not disappoint either. http://www.coasthwytraders.net/ i bagged some cool postcards and little trinkets there.
then barb and i met up for a
PICNIC ON THE BEACH!!!
(life is gooooooood!)
