Gypsy-chick journeys   

                                                Oceanside / San Diego * 2004

  I can still taste the HUGE plate of Huevos Rancheros I ordered for breakfast in San Diego. It was THE best I've ever eaten!
My favorite part of this trip was watching the sun dip into the sea on the beach at Oceanside. The sun dips into the sandy side of most New York beaches so this was a new experience. The similarity is that both New York beaches and California beaches are warm and "swimmable", except East coast beaches are greener and saltierCalifornia is a special place that I hope to revisit. There's a pull to perhaps walk the streets of San Francisco, like I do in my dreams. -OTA
