Ever since starting my blog in the beginning of the year, my most popular post remains my day at Thousand Steps Beach in Laguna, CA. I went again last week and it was pretty crowded for a Thursday. We stayed at the beach for about five hours though, so it was definitely worth the trip down there 🙂
It was low tide as soon as we got to Laguna that day, so we headed straight over to the pools. I recently received a GoPro Hero 3+ for my birthday earlier this month so I brought it along in hopes of taking some sick water shots. I noticed they put up a new sign about no trespassing so the new owner seems a little more strict than the previous but luckily we had no problems the whole day.
The best part of my day: I got to hold a starfish! Honestly, I would have a pet starfish if I could because they are just the coolest creatures ever haha we left the pools around 6 pm to go back to the main beach and watch the sunset. We knew the tide was coming up so we only had a limited time to get back over the rocks. And thank goodness we left when we did because we saw a guy try and come back an hour after we did and he had cuts all over his leg from a giant wave hitting him and sweeping him off the rocks! Ouch!
We were able to stay for the sunset and it was still perfectly warm, beautiful and amazing even at 8 at night! I put together some pictures for you guys featuring our whole day at Thousand Steps. I also made a VIDEO of all of our adventures that day which I’m beyond stoked to share with all of you! Check it out below! 😀
All photos were taken with my GoPro 🙂
NOTE: There is no exact address for this location. Also, as of now, the pools are unreachable due to lifeguards standing on the rocks and blocking people from going over. 😦
