California Dreamin’

Nothing says “California” to me like the golden light bouncing off of the tops of the tall, straight palm trees in this photo. I don’t know a single person who would argue with the calming powers of ocean water. That’s why whenever I can, I get out of the Las Vegas┬ádesert long enough to visit the coast. (Between growing up in Florida and passing through Costa Rica for a year, I’ve spent close to a third of my life near the beach.) On my most recent trip, I headed to gorgeous San Diego. After a night at the historic US Grant downtown, I headed to La Jolla, to spend some time on the beach. It was a wonderful weekend!
