livin' it up on the left coast

I've been to California a handful of times, but this was my first time to Los Angeles. Like a good tourist, I saw the Hollywood sign, went star-gazing down the Hollywood Walk of Fame, hit up Jamba Juice, and ate at In-n-Out.

But my favorite was spending time at Hermosa Beach, watching the waves and photo-stalking surfers.

And my favorite favorite was getting face-time with a couple of met-on-the-net friends. I had dinner with Marisa and breakfast with Sarah---and my heart felt so full!

And I loved waving goodbye to the California coast as we set sail for Mexico. I was a teensie bit excited. (And this, my friends, is what my "eeeeeeeeeeee!" looks like!)
