That's a long time to be away from the area south of Los Angeles, where we have been several times visiting Disneyland or cruising out of or arriving by cruise ship. The west coast is convenient, relatively speaking, since we live in the mountains of Utah. 12 hours or so either directly west or southwest will land us in either San Francisco or Los Angeles. But there is something special about the coast south of Laguna Beach.
I remember a summer vacation one year when my mother took me and a cousin to California, and we stayed in Oceanside and visited a fair in Laguna Beach. I remember it being a really awesome place. uncrowded beaches, the ocean air, the mountains rising up so dramatically from the coastal areas. My mother bought a picture that was made out of rosewood. To this day, that picture still brings back memories.
So we have our snorkel gear and wetsuits packed. We have decided on a schedule for Seaworld and, lest we forget, trick-or-treating in the neighborhoods around the Wyndham Condos in Oceanside we will be staying in. Ahhh! Halloween in SoCal! Cool! We will go to La Jolla cove and beach. Visit the LDS temple near there. And, since I don't want to offend, visiting a cousin who lives in Dana Point, whom I have not seen in, I don't know, 20 years???
This will be a fun trip, and my Nikon Digital SLR is bound to be full by the time we get back. But I'll share with you all what you definitely want to see in that area.
