a vee-dub, a surf board, and the vast blue ocean. what more could you want in life? I envy you and the sunny coast.

The Crab Cooker will make you so happy, go for the Halibut, or if you want to go somewhere, just go inside and order clam chowder, shrimp cocktail by the pound, and fisherman's bread, than go eat on the beach. We have been eating there every summer of my life, I can't wait til July when we go again! Also try a milkshake from Ruby's at the end of the pier, personally I think chocolate banana is the absolute best, but you can't go wrong with any of them(plus you burn a ton of calories making the trek to the end of the pier and back).

the best ruby's shake is black forest, I'd have to say!

The Apple Pan for burgers.

Yes, Traders Joes is a great place to shop.

The one time I went to Sprinkles, it didn't seem all that special.

My favotite cheap Mexican place is Baja Fresh (numerous locations).

The Reform School?! I'm expecting a full report, so I can live vicariously through you. Blogs are great for that.
