Never a boring minute at this pier. It's such a beautiful and clean pier, with lots of surfers and friendly venders. I've never experienced panhandlers or beggers here. It's a wonderful walk down this long pier, and always clean beach area.

20 years later and I found myself back in Oceanside visiting my daughter and son in law. We walked from the house to the pier and just soaked it in. Hopefully I can do it again soon.

We had a nice time walking the pier watching the surfers and then took a stroll down the beach. Gathered seashells by the seashore. Water was warm, waves were great. A really nice beach!
