Southern California

Thanksgiving Break.

 Thanksgiving morning I headed out with my pups Anya to the Wisdom Tree (locatedby Lake Hollywood), this hike is by far one of my favorites EVER! Going there was the best decision. It was soooo soothing and tranquil. Everyone out that morning was sweet and happy, Holidays do that to people I guess. Being on top of this mountain made me realize how much I appreciate nature bright blue skies and greens what more could I ask for?

Solstice Canyon, Malibu 

Hiking near the beach has been on my to do list for quite sometime now. I started searching a couple of places found Solstice Canyon and decided to give it a try. My friend Blanca joined me on this LOVELY adventure of not knowing where the fuck we were going.. I have always enjoyed getting lost, there is nothing better than to be lost! You  forcefully remember where you’ve already been. Safe to say I will be giving this another try, it was so beautiful can’t even imagine how amazing it will be in the summer time.

 Beach Beach Beach!! So far I have taken two beach trips to Laguna and Hermosa Beach. Laguna is my little hidden gem that I love and can’t ever be a wrong choice (minus taking the toll freeway and getting a ticket). It’s clean the water is clear, warm, and the waves are soft, what else do you need? I discovered Laguna last summer and fell in love with it, it is quite a drive from where I live but it’s totally worth it.

On my search of finding great beaches in Southern California, Hermosa was on a couple top 10 beaches. Had to check what the big fuzz was about, loved that it was a beach community. It’s not touristy which is always great lots of places to eat and hang out, you could say it’s the less touristy version of Santa Monica minus the rides at the pier. There was too much seaweed for my personal taste but other than that I liked it. I had been to Manhattan Beach before and always enjoyed my time there, these two beaches are right next to each other.

Hope I have way more beach trips to come, Summer might almost be over but this heat is just getting started.
