We were intending to go to Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach because it has it this old castle tower that is quite beautiful, and not very Californiaish. I guess it does suit a name like Victoria Beach though. We drove 2 miles further by mistake, and landed up in the regular Laguna Beach, which happened to make for a pleasant time anyway. The sky was also very grey, but there was just a thin line of a golden hue from the sunset, which was quite amazing. What really had me in awe was the color of the water, I never knew that Southern California had beaches with such a pure and clear blue-green color. I always thought I’d have to go to Hawaii for that, and I assume Hawaii’s beaches are much better than this, but hey, I’ll take what I can get and be super happy! 🙂
I love the last picture the best. Families spending quality time together, whether snapping pictures or snapping up some fish, it’s so awesome. Except for the part that I don’t really like fish, and would much they stayed in the waters and get eaten up by a shark instead of land up on my plate. But it’s all good.
I had a little bit of a pleasant surprise when I got to the pier and saw that it was wooden. What is cooler than a wooden pier?! Actually, don’t answer that, I’m sure that even I could name cooler stuff, but that’s really besides the point. Even funner is when the planks start to creak as you walk. For reals. Yikes.
We got there and were lucky that there was parking right across from the pier. Less walking, more picture snapping. Yup!
We parked across on the street though, not in here.
What an interesting idea, a playground on a beach. Don’t recall seeing that before.
I like empty benches. I really like empty benches. I don’t have anything against people sitting in them. But it’s fun taking pictures of empty benches. Please don’t certify me as crazy. Please.
I’m trying to figure out why there’s a lock there and no bike. Unless the bike was invisible. Hmm..
