Recently, I went on a family trip to CA with my husband, Dave and son, Andrew. In case you missed it, here is Day One: Venice Beach and Santa Monica.
On our second day in CA, we drove up and down the coast of Laguna Beach to see the beautiful homes and searched for a beach that we could go to.
This public beach seemed like the best place to hang out. It had plenty of restaurants and shops.
We sat on the beach for a little while and Andrew went in for a quick dip.
The water temperature in SoCal is the same as it is in New England…COLD (62-65°F) Brr!
Can you imagine the nice view from these houses overlooking the beach?
Keep dreaming Jane!
I wish we had more time to check out the area. Laguna Beach was beautiful!
We had a heck of a time getting into Newport Beach. It was bumper-to-bumper. I guess the parking situation is not the greatest near the Newport Pier.
We found a place to park many blocks away and walked up this nice boardwalk. The beach houses were nice and very well kept.

Apparently, this is a good place to fish! The pier was packed.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pelican before! Maybe at a zoo? This guy was resting on the pier and I saw him dive into the ocean. So cool!
Newport Beach is beautiful! I would love to go back and see more of it!
Have you been to Laguna or Newport Beach? What do you like to do there?
