The sand, the sea, my wife, and a vanilla latte from Starbucks. What a wonderful way to start a day in beautiful Southern California. We lived up the road years ago. Years ago! And we never really understood how blessed we were to reside there until we left.
Laguna Beach is one of the most lovely places along the Golden State's coast. Along with Corona del Mar, it's a must stop for great food, a relaxing place for an adult beverage, and to enjoy the arts.
There's a big world out there beyond Disney. I love to explore it!
