Hello again! After a quick break to focus on my last semester of school, (graduating in one month YAY!) I finally have a brand new post for you guys! My friend Tiffani and I decided to take a day trip down to San Diego last week and it was so much more amazing than I could have imagined! We brought along my GoPro to capture our day:
Our first stop was La Jolla. I had seen beautiful pictures of the coves and beach on Instagram before so I was stoked to finally be able to check it out! Once we got there, I was surprised to see sea lions lying all over the beach! We tried to be respectful and keep our distance, but I still managed to snag a few pictures of the little guys.
After climbing through some caves, we also got to do a little sea glass hunting while checking out the tide pools. The water was so clear, I just wish the water at home was the same! Unfortunately the water was a little too cold to snorkel, but it was fun to watch the sea lions swim and bob around in the water with everyone.
After wandering along the coast for a couple hours, we headed to Blacks Beach. For those who don’t know, it’s also a nude beach…interesting, I know haha but first we had to climb down a massive cliff. Once we were finally down at the beach, we set up camp close to the water and tried not to look at the naked old guys running along the beach woah!
The sand was black (who would’ve thought haha) and there was sooo much open beach space which was nice after a crowded day in La Jolla. We also brought along our friend Peter the Pineapple for some artsy photo opportunities. Once sunset began to creep up, we packed our bags and hiked back up the cliff to watch the beautiful view from the top. It was stunning! And we definitely got our workouts in for the day yeah!
Overall, it was definitely one of the most fun beach days I’ve had in a really long time and it was definitely worth the two hour drive! After stopping for burritos on the way home, I was wiped out and ready for bed. Even though it was a bit of a drive, I will definitely be coming back here soon! I would recommend making a whole day of it like we did so you have enough time to check out all the awesome different spots. I also wouldn’t recommend taking any young kids down to Blacks Beach since people do let it all hang out!
A beautiful end to a beautiful beach day!
Thank you guys for your patience, I’ll be cranking out more posts for ya this week as I sort through all the pictures I’ve taken these last couple weeks 🙂
Hint hint: it involves 1000 steps hehe
