By now I am pretty sure it is obvious I love the ocean, I love clouds and hiking.. this past weekend my friend Nadia and I headed out to Sandie-a-Go. It was forecast to rain Sunday so we headed out Saturday morning. We were hoping that the sky would clear up throughout the day but it didn’t. I love going to the beach when its moody and cloudy, there is such a different feel that I can never get enough of.
This was our first time hiking at Torrey Pines, I had read that it was busy and they were NOT kidding. Once you get to the top the views are amazing and hard to capture it’s entire beauty but i tried, not really sure were we were going we ended up doing two of the trails. One was a loop and the other one lead to the BEACH! On our way back we ended up getting our shoes nice and wet, the curves on the cliffs vary. It was such a lovely walk on the beach a part of it was pebbled which i’d never walked on before.
After that we had lunch then headed to CRESCENT BAY! Which I had posted pictures of before I absolutely love that beach since the first day I went I try to go at least once a year. I was hoping we would catch a sunset but that didn’t work out due to the light rain.
One of the last things we did in Guatemala was a beach trip!! We didn’t spend that much time at my grandmas because we were always out doing things.. We also planned it that way because nothing scares me more than my grandmas. I will add pictures of her kitchen and the town, my parents both come from Nueva Santa Rosa (they’re not related i’ve asked and they asked their parents before they started dating…)
So here is the thing about my grandmas… her home is very open and there are HUGE spiders and what not, i love the silence and cold showers don’t get me wrong i can rough it out. But there are so many ghost stories that don’t sit well with me and terrify me. With that said the first night I did not sleep and almost caused myself a massive anxiety attack because that’s how my mind rolls.
We spent the last full day at the beach HAWAII in Guatemala WHAT? Seriously it was called Hawaii. We left my grams at like 5am and got to the beach around 9. Not before taking a fucking tiny little canoe with our van on it..we live life on the edge because that shit did not seem safe. Half way my dad was like oh there are piranhas here, so that happened.
We made it to the beach safely and I spent the whole day in the water (minus lunch time) the water was just so warm and clear, the waves weren’t knocking me down for a change. This was by far the best way to start 2016, there was something about that day that made the whole trip extra magical. Sometimes we get so caught up with life and take the little simplest moments for granted.
Without further ado.. here are the images!
