A Picture-Perfect Day at the Beach in Carlsbad

By
Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California, Inc. CA DRE #01490977

Yesterday was a picture-perfect day at the beach.  So we decided to take a picnic lunch and sit on the bluff at a favorite spot to enjoy the views and just relax.

I can't complain about 70 degrees at the beach in February, and this week is supposed to be sunny and warm (up to 75 or so) every day. A far cry from what we used to experience in February in New England.

It seemed like everyone was out yesterday - not a surprise - and parking was a challenge. We were hoping to see some whales that tend to migrate at this time of year but none appeared...or I at least missed them.

Aaahhh, the Carlsbad beach life!

I could use some of that southern California sunshine in February.  I'm so ready for spring.

I wish I could share it with you Tammy Lankford,  I remember how sick of winter I used to get in New England by February.

Hi Jeff- that looks like the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. We had temps in the low 60s with sunshine today so I'm thankful for that.

How beautiful, Jeff... did my soul good to see those pictures... all we had yesterday was rain, grey skies and 44 degrees.

I wish I could send some your way George Souto 

We haven't been to the beach to just sit and relax for ages, and the weather was perfect Kathy Streib

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - There is nothing like spending time on the beach in Carlsbad during February.  I always loved walking on the beach this time of year.  Less traffic, less crowding, and then, time to visit an outdoor cafe for an alfresco meal!

I'm glad we took the time. So often it's just a drive along the coast and that's it. And of course we both said - we need to do this more often!

Rocky Dickerson  - you'll just have to come for a visit some time!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE®  - early February was pretty chilly and gray but recently the weather has been terrific. It's supposed to be 77 both Saturday and Sunday. The beach was pretty crowded this past Sunday and no doubt will be busy all week with the weather.

A day at the beach is good for the soul.  We've been enjoying seeing whales here lately.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089  - it's ALWAYS good for the soul and spirits!

We plan to get back this weekend and spend more time since it's supposed to be fairly warm - still hoping to catch sight of the whales!

I love the little critter in that third photo, Jeff.  It seems to be soaking in the joy of the day.
