Today marks day 1 in the last year of my 20’s. Yup, Happy Birthday to me! In all the celebration, I can’t help to think about the heavy stigma that is weighed on turning 30 years old and what it actually means. While I don’t feel I need to measure up to any set of goals or standards that many have accomplished by this milestone, I do feel the urge to go wild!!!
We were only prepared for a 1/2 day of fishing just outside of Marina Del Rey, but in some strange luck the charter boat decided to head towards Catalina Island for a full day of fishing! Our path was an unexpectedly beautiful adventure that I doubt could ever be recreated.
Big Bear Lake, California- we finally understand you.
One of the main attractions for our move to LA was the ease of access to hiking. So, naturally, I like to get my shoes dusty as often as possible and explore various trails and paths in LA’s own backyard.
Sequoia National Park is best known for trees. Okay, not just any trees, but the BIGGEST trees in the world! So naturally it was on our bucket list to spend a few days camping, hiking, and exploring in the famous California park.
In between working, furnishing our place, and preparing for the holidays, we got to explore a nearby oasis! Just an hour south of us in Rancho Palos Verdes is an adorable park overlooking the Pacific Ocean called Abalone Cove.
Exactly two months into the California adventure and the verdict is in…we LOVE it!!! It’s still feeling like a vacation. Everything we do is brand new for us; new food, new parks, new stores, new streets, new weather, new people, new jobs, new living, new everything!
Burgers, Beaches, Mountains= Los Angeles
Admission- I know, I am really behind in updating our UK trip, but I have to throw this in now! We took an impromptu adventure to Los Angeles, California this June for some exploring and adventure-time that, basically, changed our life!
Woo-hoo!!! Onto stop two: Liverpool, England
