Back from the Honeymoon

It feels like I've been away from here forever. Breen and I just spent the last week in San Diego for our honeymoon. We stayed in La Jolla. Lots of sun, beach and great food. Breen was able to do some awesome open water swims in La Jolla Cove while I sat at the water's edge and found sea glass. We kayaked and snorkeled out in the ocean and hit Black's Beach twice. Black's Beach might be the only nude beach in California. To get there, you've got to walk to the bottom of a very tall cliff. Of course once you get to the bottom, you have to walk back up the same very tall cliff. It was so worth the hike. I'm a bit of an exhibitionist in my own home so it was nice to do that in public without anyone raising an eyebrow. We would seriously love to live out in La Jolla but it seems it may have to wait since houses in the beach area are upwards of $1.6 million. For now, we'll just have to visit when we get the chance. I love California. At least in San Diego, it was a melting pot of people, beautiful weather and gorgeous sunsets. Coming back to the east coast felt like a let down....but we had to get back to our lives here at some point in time.

So now we are back to the grind, as they say. I'll be starting back on my job search tomorrow, catching up on laundry and spending the next few weeks with the kids until school starts up again. It is amazing how fast the summer flies.


  1. Sounds like a great time! Glad to have you back...

  2. Glad you enjoyed the trip. My friend just got back from the San Fran area where she went to a few Redwood parks and did some camping.

    I didn't do anything so exciting as travel... BUT... I did do something very wild for me last weekend. You'll have to visit my blog to see what. LOL

    Welcome home! :)

  3. I'm trying to think what it would take to get me to go nude outdoors. A fire, I'm thinking, in the middle of my morning shower.

  4. I have been to Black Beach! I am so glad that you and Breen had a wonderful time. maybe the next time you are out in California I can meet you!!
