Tomorrow I turn 100 24, but Briefcase and I celebrated early, over last weekend.
On Saturday, we drove down to Laguna Beach.
We heard the weather would be cold and there was the possibility of rain. I dressed in jeans and a bulky sweatshirt. The weather reports were wrong, it was perfect in Laguna. I was dressed way too warm.
Here's an unedited photo taken with my Blackberry right when we arrived.
Laguna is a frequent hangout for us because it's close. It's also beautiful.
And artsy. And beautiful. And fun. And beautiful.
Briefcase had made a reservation at one of my favorite hotels, the Surf and Sand Resort.
(I'll tell you more about the resort in an upcoming post.)
We walked around town for awhile. We also walked on the beach for a long time. We saw a lot of dolphins jumping and playing in the ocean. I never grow tired of watching the dolphins. They always make me happy.
We were getting pretty hot so we stopped into Hotel Laguna for a drink. We like Hotel Laguna because they have service on a deck with a great view overlooking the beach.
I'm not normally much of a beer drinker, but I joined Briefcase for a Blue Moon.
After enjoying our drinks we weaved walked back to the Surf and Sand to watch the sunset from our balcony.
It was an amazing sunset. The above photo is the view straight out from our room. You can see Catalina Island on the horizon.
I took around 1,000 photos over the weekend and a lot of them were of the sun setting. It was like watching a spectacular light show with ever changing colors. I couldn't stop clicking the shutter.
Once the sun had disappeared we cleaned up and went into town for dinner. It was a fantastic day. I'll share more with you in future posts because – oh, it was so much fun!
I had a wonderful pre-birthday weekend. It was also a great distraction from my upcoming surgery this Wednesday. (Aaack!)
