Staying coastal in San Diego

The lure of the coast is undeniable. For me, it brings back fond memories as a child playing on the beach and making sand castles with a moat using water from waves washing ashore. As an adult, sunsets, romantic strolls along the beach and surfing always generate lasting memories.
