There is nothing like waking up at the beach. If you are close enough, you can hear the ocean, but there is also the fresh ocean air and maybe the morning breeze. Most people want to walk and take a look out to the horizon and see what is happening.
Man feels better by the water. We are mostly water, live in it for our first 9 months and love to get in it to soothe our souls. Tourists and locals can be seen at the water’s edge walking, running, biking, and taking Fido out for a stroll. Oceanside is very dog friendly and most of the dogs are.
There is that first cup of coffee that can be enjoyed at a kiosk near the Pier or many venture to the Pier View Coffee Co for really good coffee and/or pastries and stroll along the strand, coffee in hand. Petite Madeline’s on Coast Highway and Pier View is also great for coffee and home made pastries.
So many great places for Breakfast. Beach Break at the Harbor specializes in tasty dishes with patio dining viewing the Harbor. Walk to the Harbor, have breakfast, walk out on the Jetty to watch the boats and surfers, walk home and you might have covered 4 miles.
