We stopped in San Clemente...

...where Lucy liked the green green grass almost as much as blue waves of the Pacific.

Remember, I said almost.

E. had mixed feelings. Maybe she's like her parents . . . more city-oriented and mountain-crazed.
We visited San Clemente to walk on the pier and see the Pacific Ocean. This is a town populated by vacationers and surfer dudes and dudettes, so the people are more laid back than in Irvine, where we saw the softball game. But by far, we found that no town was friendlier than San Diego.
