A Day in November in Oceanside, California

We decided to drive to Oceanside, walk on the Pier and have lunch at Ruby's Diner. It was still foggy but the sun broke through every now and then.

The pelican and the seagulls posed for the photographers and waited for the people fishing to give them scraps.

Surfers waiting for the "big" wave.
