“A day at the beach is never lost time. 

When the warm grains of sand touch our hearts, 

we know we’re in the right place.”



Hi, I'm Erika.  I'm originally from New England and moved to Carlsbad almost 5 years ago.  My family and I are enjoying the weather, laid back beach community and lots of family fun here.  When I am not watching my son's hockey games, or dance routines, you will find me exploring tidepools at the beach with my family.

Hi, I'm Jodi. I am the mom to 3 adults (1 son and 2 daughters), 2 grandsons and 2 dogs (a Labradoodle-Jeter and a Goldendoodle-Diggs). I love spending time with them and you can typically find us together playing Cribbage or Carbles on the weekends. I am a hockey mom through and through. I have been to many states traveling with my family to watch my kids/grandkids play hockey, I love to support my kids and I love all the fun local events. I look forward to helping Erika.
