WW: Cali Vaca Part 1

I'm in Encinitas, CA enjoying time on the west coast- soaking up some rays and catching up with family. We spent the first day in La Jolla Cove. Breathtaking views. Seals. Fish tacos. And a fun cave that reminds me of an old woman's silhouette. I've been enjoying all the new photo ops. And the temps are a welcome reprieve from the recent South Carolina heat. Here's a sampling of our fun...

  36. I can't believe you are there at my home & I'm not there to actually meet you. Now you see why I miss home so much- right? It's an amazing place! I actually have a sticker of that Woody on the back of my van window.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh AND- you absolutely MUST go eat at Harbor Fish in Carlsbad. They are right on the water & my favorite tiny surf shop is right next door. Second favorite if you are looking for a bit more selection- Becker Surfboards across the street & down a bit. There is also a great wood-fired pizza place in that shopping center.

  51. These photos are gorgeous!! What an absolutely beautiful place!! I am in love with all the palm trees!! It looks like your having an amazing time! I have to be honest, the photos of your family on the rocks with the ocean below give me the heebie-jeebies!! It may be an illusion, but it looks like a huge cliff/drop off! What is that they are holding in the second to last photo?
