When the time comes to sun break, California is always calling. From Seattle, it is fairly easy to wake up, hop on a plane and soon feel like you are in another (sunny) universe. Laguna Beach, is a quintessential California beach town, loaded with laid back ease. From the dramatic ocean side views-
to sun drenched fashions (a.k.a. Coachella garb sold at one of my favorite local boutiques, Lala), it fits the bill.
This trip we enjoyed a special treat, staying at the Montage.
The next day we refuel ourselves back in the quaint town of Laguna at Orange Inn, where I try to abide
by self-imposed California rules to eat as many foods as possible that are wrapped in tortillas and accompanied by avocados. Following sustenance, a visit to Crystal Cove State Park, otherwise known as a k.a. beach to explore tidal pools and take in that salty ocean air.
Surf culture reigns supreme-and we find ourselves completely stoked by the wares and more at Thalia Surf Shop.
we couldn’t leave town without hitting this vintage Thrift Shop. What can we say, we wanted to make Macklemore proud, so we picked up a nice raspberry colored Lacoste shirt for $5 bucks and used lots of restraint in considering weight requirements in checking bags for the eventual trip home.
Come back soon for Part 2; Palm Springs.
