the next day we woke up and watched gilmore girls in bed for awhile, it was nice to take some time to lounge and relax.
around 11 we put on our suits and headed to huntington beach (our families favorite beach)
on our way to the beach we stopped by the liquor shop, (don't worry, we don't drink)
the liquor store has a little deli in the back of it, and surprisingly enough they make the yummiest sandwiches, so we bought some lunch and took a little picnic to the beach.
after lunch we took long naps on the beach, took some pictures, and played in the water for a bit.
soon enough, it was dinner time, so we walked to main street for la roccos, as you probably already guessed, it's been a family favorite since i was in junior high, this is probably THE favorite, upon request from our fam, we ordered a whole box of pizza (and some garlic knots) to take home to them, they were estatic.
after dinner, we shopped.
as snack time rolled around we decided we'd make smores on the beach, but there were no available fire pits, so as we walked back to our car, to find something else to eat, we walked past some people with a fire going in their front yard, we figured, what do we have to lose? so we stopped and asked if we could roast a couple marshmellows real quick, they were so sweet and were excited to let us join in on their fun.
i love nice people, making new friends makes me happy.
after snack, we took a walk along the pier. around 10 we realized we had totally planned to rent and ride bikes on the beach, but never got around to it.
then conveniently enough, we saw a group of boys with bikes and little "wagons" attached to the back, so we paid one of them to take us for a little ride along the beach.
perfect end to our short - but amazing - california trip.
the next morning we woke up, packed, and were on the road by 9 a.m.
as sad as i was to leave, it was nice to see my family again, i missed them.
until next time california!
