My West Coast Escape: Part One

Finally! Snaps from my trip to the West Coast. What a fantastic vacation it was! I’m going to post pics in two installments. This is part one. It all started in Southern California — I flew into LAX and got a small taste of Los Angeles before driving north to stay with my little sis. Here I am beach-hopping — Crystal Cove, Laguna, and more. The views were to.die.for.

On my first day there, we decided to venture into LA…

We messed around with Jaws at Universal Studios and went on the Studio Tour!

Here we are outside Jurassic Park — love that Steven Spielberg signed it “Roar!”

We stopped by the Hollywood Walk of Fame to say hello to Uncle Dave…

…and rounded out the day with sunset views from Mulholland Drive.

My biggest vacation goal was to visit Santa Catalina, the island my college a cappella group sang about. We rented a golf cart to drive around and see the sights.

The golf cart allowed us primo access — check out these views from the top!

Here we are leaving the island on the ferry, called the Catalina Flyer. 

For my birthday, we went out for Mexican food and rooftop drinks on Laguna Beach.

And on my last night in SoCal, we managed to catch the most breathtaking sunset. Stay tuned for part two: my weekend adventure in San Francisco!
