Oceanside: Sea, Sun & Friends...

Better than just going to the beach is having friends that live there (Eric & Brady are two such friends).

While we waited for them to finish work, we hung out at the seashore. It was an idyllic day.
Brady then introduced us to an amazing fruit, the White Sapote. Her neighbor gave her permission to pick them whenever she wanted and after eating some, we had to have our own to take home. I loved this description, "Like custard cups on a tree".
The fruit is native to Mexico, Central America and northern parts of South America. The trees ended up in California due to the Franciscan monks transplanting them from Central Mexico 200 years ago. What a surprising find.
Since Brady is leaving for a month in France, on Friday, we celebrated with wine from the Côtes du Rhône... Très bon!

When Eric returned home, after work, we headed to the Oceanside Harbor. It was a truly picturesque stroll.

Our dockside dining was perfect.
Loved this day!

Love it! I am so glad it worked out to see you both before I leave on my trip!
Picking sapote was fun. They are so good! And almost unheard of. They almost look like an avocado but are more delicate and sweet. I like the custard description.

Enjoy the rest of your time in Temecula. I am glad it cooled down a bit. Well, I guess I don't really know. It hasn't been too hot at the beach!
À plus tard!
