Above: My wonderful traveling companion. We have always talked about traveling together and so our first night we celebrated in Pasadena at this amazing Italian restaurant. We split a bottle of wine and had delicious pasta. Pasadena is a really beautiful place as well, definitely one of my favorite places we visited.
Below: We spent a day in San Clemente. This was me on our way there. I was in the backseat enjoying the scenery and the fact we were on our way to the beach! That was a fun day. The beach we went to was surfer territory, so we got to see some guys catch some waves. We then ate at this super good burrito place. Perfect day.
Above: One day we went to a surf open at Huntington Beach. I fell completely in love with the surf culture. I totally could live here and maybe one day I will.
Below: This was taken from the pier at Huntington. Such a gorgeous day! I need to do a tribute just to the weather, it was perfection! The sun was never too hot and there was no humidity whatsoever! I was thrilled. But the water was freezing. It’s like that all year round.
Above: This was taken from the front porch of the house we stayed at. Our little house looked like this one. I love the orange.
Below: This was the tiled floor from on the many coffee shops we went to. I swear all I had there was coffee and tacos, but I’m not complaining. It was kind of amazing. Just saying. This is from the Intelligenrsia in Silver Lake. A really hip place, they make delicious coffee. These baristas are like pros.
Below: We met some really cool people while we there. These guys are circus artists and so what do they do to entertain us? Stand and balance on each other. Haha I learned how to do this trick as well. It was such a blast.
Above: This was from my last morning in California. It was one of my favorite moments. I spent the whole morning (While Asa and Andi slept) writing, thinking, listening to music and watching the world go by. It was a good moment. (p.s. I totally have pajama shorts on, it just doesn’t look like it haha)
Below: Driving through Hollywood on the highway. The Hollywood sign was somewhere around there. We drove A LOT! To get anywhere it takes at least thirty minutes. So I was able to see a lot of So Cal just by driving everywhere!
Below: I spent one day being a model. Hilarious, right? My friend, Asa, told me he would be doing some modeling while we were in CA and he was gonna pull me into it. I was like, yeah right, not gonna happen. Well, it did and I am so glad. I had such a blast. And Andi is a brilliant photographer! She has such a great eye. I am so glad I was able to be a part of this project.
So that was my California trip! We did a ton more and I’ll a few more posts about the trip. If you’re friends with me on FB you can see a whole album full of CA pics and also other photos from the photo shoot.
I really cannot wait until I get to go back. California, til next time. <3
p.s. sorry the pics are all funky. One reason why I don’t post a bunch of pics on here, because I really haven’t figured out an efficient way to do it!
