Discovery Bay

Sunday took us to Discovery Bay. I figured its the closest thing to O'side we're gonna get. Its only about 30 miles away, so I didn't know what to expect. Anywhere outside of town in most directions is farm land or houses. The website made it look nice and I thought lunch on the water would be fun. Well, there are way more boats than in the Oceanside Harbor. Way. They actually have a section on land where they stack them 4 boats high. There are beautiful houses surrounding the bay. What the marina lacks is....well, anything to do if you aren't on a boat. There are maybe 5 shops that no one was in. The one restaurant was in the process of closing so they were only serving bbq on the patio. The view was nice, but drinks out of dixie cups. Thank Not even side dishes. No chips, or fries, or even salad. I had a tritip sandwich in a paper bowl. And the straw that broke the camel's regular sugar for my iced tea. NONE. I am not a fan of fake sugar. I am one of those people that people the fake sugar is going to do more harm to you later in life than real sugar. Of course...moderation...blah blah blah.

If you go to the Oceanside Harbor you have several places to eat, there are benches to sit at, grassy areas, etc. At Discovery Bay if you don't have a boat you can't get near the water. We have no idea how big the bay was since we could only be in one spot. Kind of a bummer, but again, not to be out for a few hours in the convertible.
