I've been to the beach at Santa Monica and Newport and Corona del Mar. I've dipped my toes in the San Francisco Bay. I've been in swimming pools in Anaheim and Santa Ana. All cold.
We went to Corona del Mar when I was in Cali a couple weeks ago. It was easily the most beautiful California beach I've ever been to. The fog rolled in before I really took very many pictures so the ones I have aren't all that clear and don't really show the beauty of this beach. But it was just . . . blue water and cliffs with waves hitting them. Gorgeous houses. I could move there. Like, tomorrow. Right now.
Surely I'd adjust to the cold, right?
Seriously, could our faces BE anymore "this water is effing FRIGID?" Doubt it.
My number one thing when it came to going to California was that I wanted to be able to spend a day on the beach with girlfriends, possibly some Mimosas, and NO KIDS.
We totally accomplished it. I'm (hopefully) headed to an east coast beach in a little over a week (fall break for the kids). Brandi in a couple of weeks is already jealous of September 14th Brandi. September 14th Brandi got kid-free beach time! And a lot of girlfriend beach time!
Oh! And Mimosas!
Lemme tell y'all what we did.
I wanted some kind of vodka. The store we stopped at didn't have the mango passionfruit sorbet I'd been wanting. Instead, I picked up some Skyy Infusions dragonfruit flavor. We poured a shot of that into our mimosas and HOLY VODKA, Y'ALL. That was some good shizz! Seriously. Try it the next time you make a mimosa. You can go ahead and thank me now.
