The pier in Oceanside is the longest wooden pier in California. We attempted to eat at the diner that sits at the very end of the pier, but we balked at 1 1/2 hour wait. But we strolled to the end, watching fisherman of all ages and colors, the kids stunned as one person caught–and kept–a large starfish. A lone sea lion entranced, playing amongst the supports, and there were pelicans just hanging around, waiting to be fed. They should have had a bucket to collect funds.
But be careful who you feed!
