I am back from a short, last-minute trip to southwestern United States (Arizona, Nevada and California). While I was vowed by Las Vegas and amazed by the Grand Canyon, my bronze tan is a constant reminder of how much time I spent on beaches in California. Having researched a list of top 10 beaches in California last year, it was a shame I could only hit up three, but that’s definitely better than none. Here are the photo highlights from gorgeous days spent basking in the California sun:
The Santa Monica Pier is undoubtedly one of the most iconic ones in California. I originally just wanted to go there to snap a picture or two of the famous roller coaster and ferris wheel. However, I was seriously distracted by the Pacific, spending hours battling the waves and putting my new waterproof camera to use. I was immensely jealous of surfers who were riding the majestic waves and made a note to self: add “learn to surf” on bucket list.
