This is where we stayed.
The condo we stayed in was very nice, but the best part of it was the ocean right out our window. It was right on the water, so every morning and evening we spent most of our time on the balcony watching surfers, beach volleyball and the waves.
our view out on the pier.
all those black dots are surfers.
Now the downside to the condo! Yes we had the beautiful view of the ocean but along with the beautiful view of the ocean came a not so beautiful view of a homeless man. This homeless man with a baby buggy strolled all around the beach, we only got to see him on what was apparently cleaning days. The public washroom was very close to us and a shower to rinse of sand, do you see where I am going with this? My mom had warned us, but really nothing prepared me for what I was about to see. I think it was around lunch time and I was eating my sandwich out on the deck noticed the homeless man sitting at one of the tables. As I looked closer I saw that he was taking off his socks. Once he did that he had a bucket and filled it with water I thought hmmm maybe he is going to wash his socks....um nope. He continued to gear down to his undies, walk over to the shower with a bar of soap and wash himself. It was more then I could handle he washed EVERY part! It was so horrible, my lunch was finished very quickly. The next day the police were talking to him I think asking him to move along and that he did.
