ENCINITAS ? Visitors to San Elijo State Beach now have a choice when it comes to surfing: the ocean or the Internet.
The state parks system and SBC Communications have partnered to offer a wireless Internet connection so visitors can log on to the Internet and e-mail pictures home after a hard day hiking, swimming and roasting wieners.
San Elijo is the first in the 278-park system to provide the wireless service, called "WiFi" for "wireless fidelity," parks and SBC officials announced last week.
