I'm not complaining, TDH and I live near downtown LA way up in the hills with a big garden and a gorgeous sunset view. But we do miss our 3 blocks from the beach apartment in Santa Monica. We are taking a mini vacation and headed to the coast for the weekend. Tonight we are dining with friends we met on our honeymoon in Fiji, how cool is that! Then, one night in a fancy schmancy hotel in Laguna Beach, one night on Balboa Island, Newport Beach. I'm hoping for orange sunset runs in soft sand, paddle boarding and fresh seafood. Enjoy your weekend!
