173 The Ocean after the Fest

The third weekend in July San Clemente is invaded. Invaded by water sport enthusiasts from all over the country...including Hawaii. It's Ocean Fest, billed as the Greatest Show on Surf. People pack the beaches watching surf, swim, run, paddle and lifeguard competitions. It's two full days of water play at all levels. It's fun, but we locals are happy to see everyone pack it in and head back to where they came from. We joined the festivities on Sunday morning and it was nice. Then we went back at the end of the day to watch the rubber ducky race.

This is us being thankful to have our little beach back.
