This past weekend, Dave and I decided to be a little adventurous. We packed a cooler with lunch (and an admittedly unreasonable amount of cheese balls) and headed out. Our first stop was Long Beach. We were met with this beautiful view:
I’m not sure why, but Long Beach had an almost old-time feel to it. Or at least that’s how I pictured it in my head:
Or it could just be delivering a really large shipment of toilet paper. Or it’s a Titanic reenactment? If that were the case, I definitely would have jumped in the water and found a piece of floating driftwood so I could audition for the role of Rose.
We left Long Beach with a significantly smaller load of cheese balls and suntanning on the agenda (it was on my agenda, anyway.) After stopping to buy a couple of beach chairs, we arrived at our second destination, Laguna Beach:
Our drive was full of more beautiful glimpses of the Coast.
Our final destination, and where we ended up stopping for the evening, was in San Clemente. It is an adorable town with the cutest winery, which I immediately dragged Dave to. We sampled several local varieties of wine and chatted with our server about the town, and afterward, the sun was just setting over the water.
I think is my favorite image from the whole day:
Luckily, I know our adventures in California have only just begun. 🙂
