Change is in the Air

 March 2020 will be forever remembered as the beginning of the Coronavirus Pandemic -  or at least the year that things got real.   

Craig and I decided to celebrate our 10th anniversary by booking a month at Paradise by the Sea RV Resort - an ocean side campground in Oceanside, California.  It was more expensive than our usual month long stays in a campground - but we decided to indulge as an anniversary treat.

Although the sites were pretty close together, 
there were some nice perks to being 
right across the street from the ocean.

with a small pool and hot tub.

In the morning we'd walk across the street to have 
coffee on the beaach.

Lots of great energy all around.

And family, too! 
Our nephew Shayne paid us a visit soon after
he arrived from a year long travel adventure in Mexico.

Soon talk of the Coronavirus started to escalate.

Shelves at the grocery store started to empty out.

But NOT all shelves were bare. 

After a long search for toilet paper all around town, 
we found some in the camp store - Go figure! 

We even ordered some from Amazon.


New signs started to appear on buildings around town

as restaurants shifted to TAKE OUT or CURBSIDE only.

Playgrounds started to close.

My grandson, Julian, had his first birthday party over Zoom. 

Thankfully, we continued to enjoy 
amazing sunsets each night

We walked along the beach each day.

and enjoyed watching others take joy along the oceanside.

More and more beaches were closed.

However, the  Oceanside beach remained open as long as 
people only used them for walking.

The beach patrol did their best to 
encourage folks to do their part
to keep folks from setting up chairs.

We continued to enjoy our walks on the beach.
