Ocean Beach Pier

Here is the view looking back into the neighborhood. The pier is in a "T" shape and a nice walk. This post is for my mom because I know that whenever she has some free time she ends up taking a walk at the Ocean Beach Pier. Our family grew up in this neighborhood and I am sure that the pier brings back many childhood memories for her. Memories of going to the beach and Newport Avenue, seeing the tidepools, walking along the cliffs, crazy brothers diving off the end of the pier, bonfires, surfers, big waves during storms, grunion runs, the ocean smell, walking home the 6 or 7 blocks with sandy feet and sticky salty skin. And probably some other things that I don't know about! ;) Happy Mother's Day!

Is this area close to Newport Beach? I don't know my Cali geography too well but noticed you mentioned Newport Avenue. :(

Nicolas, Ocean Beach is in San Diego (San Diego County) and Newport beach is in Orange County. It's about a 80 minute drive north from San Diego to Newport Beach.
