Weekday Getaway to Beach Camping

Now that LOST is over it's back to reality. No more flasbacks, flash forwards, time travel shifts, smoke monsters. If that's a bit depressing, then do what I do and head out to the coast for a bit of escape. San Elijo campgrounds might not be "the island", but there's no "others" trying to kill you, either.

The dusty campgrounds are a bit like Grapes of Wrath but the surf below is pure Endless Summer. The best part of the campgrounds is Bull Taco, the concession stand that serves up oddball gourmet tacos. They just opened a new location in Oceanside and at their grand opening had, of all things, aligator tacos, pork belly tacos, even foie gras tacos. Being cheap I stuck with the pork and chicken tacos ($.50 during the grand opening) and they were pretty darn delicious.

Wasn't I talking about the campgrounds? Yes, it's a great getaway for locals. Even if you don't stay you should drop by and stroll the grounds, grab some tacos and watch the sunset. It almost makes you forget you have to go to work the next day. Speaking of which, I have to go to work right now so until next time....

I'm dying to try this! Pork belly tacos, yum! You think that all pork belly is good...fatty bacon, can't beat it, but, some places definitely do it better than others.
