it's still the most beautiful state in the Union. i was able to surf in the morning and snowboard in the afternoon. no other state has such natural diversity. that's what i miss the most.

but the politics there make it a place i couldn't put up with anymore.
That said, you still have not addressed the original question.

It's like when someone asks a question and the first response it "I don't know but someone who does should answer you question" (didn't know the punctuation for parphrasing).

Note sure if I agree about the four seasons being the same. We have tank top & shorts season, t-Shirt & jeans season, sweater & socks season and light coat & closed toes shoes season.

Beaches that I have visited & like are:

Crystal Cove Moreno - On a bluff with ocean view. I like how the sites are sectioned off. But the walk to the beach & back will kill you.

San Clemente - Full hookups but neighbors are really close. Walk to beach can do you in too but driving down the hill works. On a bluff - some sites have a partial ocean view while others sites have no view. I camp here often because of the full hookups & I like the beach.

Leo Carrillo - Small beach area, not too crowded. Cam walk to beach. I think they are improving this campground with hook ups.

Del Mar (Marine base close to San Diego) - Right on the sand but a long walk in deep sand to the water.

We try to get to San Clemente at least once a year and also go to Silver Strand a couple of times a year. They are two very different beaches, but both are nice in their own way. We went to Carpinteria over Spring Break and had a great time there as well. If you are into shells, there are some gorgeous shells there. We have reservations for San Elijo in a couple of weeks. I have never been there before, but I have heard a lot of great things about it, plus it is just a short walk to Las Olas for some killer fish tacos!

Just a heads up that the San Clemente photo is from the beach parking lot. I was heading back to camp when I saw the sky and decided to stop for a moment.

My co-worker keeps talking me out of Silver Strand as I RV solo. She thinks it would be tough for me to get the trailer in easily. I have visited San Elijo a couple of times. They have some sites with full hookups and some sites (no hook ups) that are next to the sand where you can walk out to the beach.

Carpinteria looked nice but the sand is too deep for me. After a lot of feet & ankles surgeries deep sand is a killer for me. My co-worker likes to camp there. She likes the little town being close by.

I have camped at Doheny twice. The first time backing up to the sand & beach. It was nice being close to the water. The second time my site was in the back area. My next door neighbor family was were camping there too but they were tent camping. In the middle of the night the train sounded like it was on top of us. It was so funny - a car driving by head lights were shined in at the same time I could hear the train brakes. My TT were shake a bit. LOL - It was just like one of "I Love Lucy" shows. Everyone else slept through it and didn't know anything about a train. I don't remember hearing the train when I had ocean view but that campground isn't that big so I must had slept through it too.

We will be at San Elijo next week. Our next door neighbors rave about it, so I booked for this month, and next month mid-week. We haven'5 been thete either. It's a bluff campground, is all I know. I will post pics! We will bring our Jeep to explore the town of Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Will check out Las Olas for those fish tacos!

I camped at San Onofre decades ago but wasn't impressed by the dirt sites and no ocean view, very close proximity to loud trains at night. Might try San Clemente State Beach, because its so close. The only thing I didn't like about Silver Strand was the parking lot camping. Pretty darn close to everyone! But the beach is truly gorgeous! We spent 2 nights there last month. I am willing to try it again.
