Wow. What a trip. I always know that my vacations out to California are going to be amazing but this one was indescribable. Many days consisted of me sitting in a coffee shop working/doing homework but once I was finished for the week the adventures were game on. For 2 days I got to explore half moon bay, a cute little town south of San Francisco with stunning views of the cliffs lining the coast and beautiful secluded beaches. Now for the good part.
Over the weekend, Drew and I headed up north just a little south of Oregon. We stayed at an amazing campsite where a heard of elk would greet us each evening. We spent Sunday doing what we do best, exploring. We first made our way to Fern Canyon. In order to get there we had to cross freezing (and I mean freeezzingg) cold creeks, but it was totally worth it. The trail that lead us there also offered amazing views of the ocean, which is where we headed after the canyon. After the beach we wandered around the Redwood National and State Park. You guys.. I can’t even describe to you how incredible this place was. Never have I ever felt so small standing next to a tree! To top of our adventurous day, we headed to Trinidad where we hiked up a cliff and enjoyed a glass of wine while watching the sun set on the coast. Talk about romantic, am I right? (;
This trip wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t make my way to the city! On my second to last day I ventured up to San Francisco, where I was greeted with stunning views! My first “little” adventure was Slacker Hill. I’m not exactly sure why they call it “Slacker” Hill because it took everything in me to reach the top. BUT, the views were totally worth it! Next on the agenda was Point Bonita Lighthouse. This place was A-MAZ-ING. I stayed here for awhile hoping that maybe, just maybe, Jason Mamoa (aka Auquaman) might appear. He didn’t.
I am so grateful for all the adventures I am able to take but none of it would be possible if it weren’t for my amazing boyfriend, Drew! This trip was absolutely amazing and I have him to thank for everything. Until next time, Cali!
