I’ve been to California many times before, but this time with a different purpose: to fight off the post-Northeastern winter blues and recover peacefulness. Nowhere better to do this than the West Coast, especially if you need a quick fix. Because when you see sunshine, blue skies in some of the most beautiful places in the world everyday, it’s really more of an effort to be sad.. Here’s a recap of my 4-day getaway to SoCal:
Exploring Joshua Tree National Park:
Catching up with an old friend at Venice Beach:
Making memories with the Pau Hana Surf Supply Co. family:
Just like this isn’t my first time in the area, it’s certainly not my last. Because there are so many hidden gems and places I haven’t explored yet (or would like to visit again) on this side of the United States, that I’ll be back many more times before I die. Whenever that will be, I just hope that it’ll be exactly how it looks now, or even better..
