In the meantime, Andrea has been introducing me to people in the area she knows and finding things to keep me busy. Colton, one of her students took me down to the beach at Oceanside and showed me around a bit, we got to see Seals down near all the boats. After visiting her Danish friends in Irvine, Jacob came down for my birthday to keep me company. He sat at the hairdressers with me whilst I got me hair highlighted (took 2 hours) then we went and had ...
... time, so we regretfully head over to the Lego store, where it is “very” tempting to buy a lot of Lego! We (I) manage to restrain ourselves (myself) and only buy a few models, including a nice Lego picture frame.
As the kids were so disappointed in missing out on the water play area, and as they are still in their togs, we promise to take them to the pool, which once again, is designed with families in mind and includes ...
... to full throttle. We did however spend a lot of the time on Jetski watch, with them being unable to tell clockwise from counter clockwise! But it was really amazing, and after being the glamorous model on the front of the boat, Sian pulled the boat into the marina and parked up with an inch perfect parallel park, one which the chap before us took 3 attempts to complete. Who says women can't park??? Certainly not this newly married man. And the day would end with a night ...
... 1st, we have to get there. Driving in 8 lanes of traffic is not fun but at least we do not crash. The TomTom is our best friend, telling us what lane we need to be in all the time.

We head for the ...
... doze, so we headed back to the beach house for a relax. I'm hoping Rach and Robert's ears have recovered. I don't think we actually got the kids to sleep in the arvo, but we distracted them with a walk just down the street to Mission Beach, where the kids frolicked in the waves (yeah, I know frolicked is a totally kitschy word but there's really no better one to describe what they did), threw kelp, and got progressively more nude.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSurf Motel Carlsbad
Happy with the room. It was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large and perfectly clean as well. Room had a kitchen with a microwave and refrigerator. The decor was pretty dated, but not in disrepair. Pleasant and prompt innkeeper. Free breakfast with juices, fresh fruits and pastries. Location is probably the best part about this place because you can easily walk to the beach as well as downtown Carlsbad.
