WIFI on the Beach

What could be better than sitting on the beach in Carlsbad, watching the surfers (yep, I’m dreaming not participating), enjoying the warm sunny weather, and blogging…or checking email. Or while you are sitting at your picnic table? Or in your tent or RV?

Sounds pathetic, doesn’t it? I suppose so, at least for those who can tear themselves away from their computers and PDAs. But for those who can’t, move over Starbucks!

There is WIFI at many of the California beaches, including South Carlsbad State Beach (within 150 – 200 feet of the Lifeguard Headquarters in the park) for folks at the picnic areas, campgrounds, in their RV or cabins, and yes, if you are on the beach close enough (and can see with all the glare). Some other local San Diego beaches with WIFI include Torrey Pines (La Jolla) and San Eljio (Cardiff).

AT & T is teamed up with the park system to provide WIFI service in multiple state parks at the beaches and elsewhere, such as the Anzo-Borrego desert (I believe this actually began back in 2005). And as long as you have wireless capability and are within a couple of hundred feet of an AT & T hotspot, things should be golden.

Ain’t technology wonderful?
