Life's a beach!

Treasure Island - Laguna Beach, California

Southern California has treated us well! After two full days on the beach in San Diego (plus some excellent seaside fireworks on the 4th) we started to head up north to Los Angeles, but were sidetracked by a little city called Laguna Beach.

Laguna gets a bad rap due to the MTV show of the same name, but its actually a very hip town, home to many artists and independent businesses, as well as some of the most quiet, peaceful, beautiful beaches along the California coast. After two days on Pacific Beach in San Diego (which had a louder, harder-partying crowd), Laguna Beach was just what we needed. Taking the advice of Emily's friend Sandy (a native Lagunan, and our virtual tour guide) we parked outside the Montage Resort and Spa, and walked down to Treasure Island Cover, beneath the resort.

We spent the day reading and relaxing on the beach, and after a tasty dinner at the Coyote Grill, we left Laguna at sunset, and headed up to Sunset (Boulevard, that is).
