This morning, J.J. decided to take Honu on a longer drive. Our destination was Oceanside, California. We took Highway 101 South enjoying a familiar route where we haven’t driven since last year.
California Coronavirus numbers have not flattened. Governor Newsom ordered bars to close again today in seven counties. It was too early to tell if the owners of bars were adhering to the latest state mandate. In spite of the day being dark and gray, J.J. and I were amazed to see how packed beach parking lots were. Vehicles were lined up next to each other. There was no social distancing and rarely did we see pedestrians and sunbathers wearing face masks.
With the 4th of July holiday weekend approaching and the long stretches of California beaches continuing to lure sun lovers, we hope individuals will make responsible decisions when it comes to dining out and beach times.
