My sister, Maureen, my great niece, Trinity, and I went to Laguna Beach to start the summer off with some fun in the sun.
I noticed there were tons of pretty umbrellas at the beach. Looks like people are trying to stay out the sun and avoid the wrinkles down the line.
We didn't need anything as we were going to walk around and shop. Not to lay out or go in the water.
I kept getting pulled out a bit further and further by Trinity. She was having so much fun that there was no way I could say no to her. Oh no! A wave came in and got us. I had Capri pants on and pulled them up so they wouldn't get wet and she had shorts on. But the splash of the wave got us a little wet anyway.
We were laughing so hard. Then a bigger wave came and crashed right one us. We were soaked!
We also went in the cute shops there.
In one of the shops we went in this darling dog was there. She was so sweet and loving. Laguna welcomes dogs in a lot of places. This one was the owners dog. She came to work with him. What a fun job to be able to bring your dog with you!
Also, there were lots of shells and items made with shells. Like this pretty box.
Trinity wanted these two little shell turtles. She went to go pay for them and the wonderful man said he was going to give them to her! Wow! How often do you go to pay for something and you are told you can have the items for free..........NEVER! How nice was that.
We will be back to that store again. Also, if you are ever in Laguna Beach you need to go in and check it out. You won't be disappointed.
Down a way further is this little walkway with more shops. Let's take a peek at what they have down there.
Laguna Beach is known for being an art town. Even the drains in the road look cute with these hand painted signs.
Look at this. Just like they used to have, a big news stand full of magazines and news papers. But Trinity was more interested in the pay phone. I don't think she has ever seen one before. They are few and far between now that everyone has cell phones.
I volunteered there a few years ago and got to go on a release. It is sort of sad to say good bye to the seals but when you see them going into the water and being greeted by the other seals it can't help but warm your heart. You know that is where they belong.
It's back to home for us.
Hope you enjoyed our little trip to Laguna Beach. We are so lucky to be so close to the beach. It's only about 15-20 mins. from where we live.
