We try to be spontaneous once in a while, and our quick trip to California, though not necessarily spontaneous (we went for a wedding), sure felt such since we were there for such a short time. We were able to get in some sight-seeing highlights, saw some old friends and met a few new ones too. We were definitely sad to leave the sunshine behind, but it was a great escape from the cold of the East.
We stopped in Santa Monica for a short jaunt to see what we could see. J met a lifeguard, which thrilled him to his toes. "The real Baywatch!" was his proclamation.
It was chilly - actually, the whole weekend was pretty chilly - but it was still a gorgeous day.
San Clemente was also beautiful. We saw some guy catch a lobster, and watched the sun set over the ocean. We enjoyed a bonfire and roasted some veggie dogs over the pit while laughing with friends and watching the stars.
Speaking of stars, we were actually in LA, and on Hollywood Boulevard the day of the awards, so that was kind of neat, but I don't really have any desire to ever go back since I am not much of a city person.
But anyway, the wedding was great and saying goodbye was hard, but it was definitely a weekend for the soul.
