Summer at the Beach

Last week wasn't enough and we had so much fun that we decided to pack up the truck and head right back to the beach.  This time for a week.
Oh it was splendid.
8 hour days spent surfing, swimming, exploring, and laying in the sun.

There is nothing like the beach to renew your spirit.

We soaked in every possible moment.

Then the sun went away and the fog rolled in.
The last two days were cold and foggy.  We went to visit Grammy and were able to hop in her pool for about an hour before the sun went away again.

It was disappointing but we still had so much fun.  We opted for a little shopping and site seeing around Laguna.  Found some great stores.
Lala-Kerry Cassill is to die for.  Her handmade linens are amazing.
Then I found a few vintage shops.  Sin is Pretty is very cool full of oddities and vintage.  The owner is super sweet.  Blast is a vintage consignment shop packed full of vintage and high end consignment items.  Also very chipper and nice.  It was a fun walk down PCH to discover little boutiques.  It was the perfect way to spend the day if we could play on the beach.

On the last night we did an early Father's Day celebration at Coyote Grill in Laguna.  If you are ever in the mood for amazing Mexican food and very cool beach front views, then this is your place.  They have GF and Vegan options so the menu is huge!
Great service too. 
Thanks to the manager, she tended to the boys needs perfectly with no fear of GLUTEN or DAIRY contamination.

It was so fun and relaxing and I am sure we will head out a few more times before summer is over.
