What's funny is that I call it a small town but it's really not. Oceanside, California. The population is 180,000, or so it says on the population sign just outside of town. It honestly feels like 20,000 tops. It's an amazing place, and one of my very favorite places on the planet. It's also where they filmed some of Top Gun, and the house where Tom Cruise's character lived is on the Strand, just down from the condo we rented the last time we were there.
I would move there in a minute, if my family would agree!
