    Ruben, I need to find the title of the song. It was on Youtube under INSPIRATIONAL tunes. Charlie IS something :)

    Hi Iolanda! Your videos have made me so nostalgic for So Calif.... I have been on that pier in Oceanside many times. When I was a teenager, we would often drive the hour's drive to Oceanside and Carlsbad, and spend our summer vacations on that very beach. My husband and I recently returned to walk the pier...the same pier where we often held hands when we were kids on our first dates. It was so bizarre after so many years, now that we are grandparents. Long before those high-rise hotels were in the background.....Oceanside looked much different way back then!! Thanks for the memories!!

    Lovely ocean view. I hope that pelican got his dinner down? I have a brother in El Cajon and was out to visit him last year. SD is a great place for a family.

    I saw the pelican one, Iolanda. What a struggle for a bird just to eat a fish. I think you must be so happy to be back by the beach. I would love it there!
