I love taking pictures of anything and everything, especially at Disneyland. Why not? It's beautiful! I am a regular contributor to The Disneyland Gazette, a fantastic podcast about my favorite place. I love to travel and seek out hole in the wall eateries. You never know what you'll see here so keep coming back!
A fellow blogger did a Jedi mind trick when he blogged about donuts. I had been resisting the urge to get some but finally compromised: If I went for a nice walk on the beach and hiked some of the trails, I could then go get some donuts, right?
I borrowed my roommate's parking pass and took off towards the coast so follow me as I explore a different area of Crystal Cove State Park.
So far this is easy....a nice flat surface.
Here's the beach access trail...
Let's get educated, folks.
We continue on a nice, slight downhill walk. (The key word here is downhill.)
More stuff to read.
Oh my gosh, no matter how many times I see this view, it always takes my breath away.
A little info before we hit the sand trail down to the water.
I feel like I'm 12 again, LOL!
Can you believe this?
I don't realize how lucky I am to be living in Southern California until I walk at the beach.
Some pelicans fly overhead.
I thought this plant was a very interesting color.
Oh oh....eventually, I'll have to go back up those stairs.... I'll worry about that later!
Oh to be seven again.
Of course, I could not resist walking out on the rocks.
Looking into the tide pools I saw lots of activity but of course, as soon as I pulled up my
camera, all the little crabs would hide!
After enjoying the wonderful view for about an hour, I climbed back up the stairs, up the sandy trail and went over to a lookout point.
Here's a brief video I took. When I got home and viewed it, I decided that even though I'm unemployed, I was going to buy a parking pass for the California State Park System. There are so many beautiful parks in California and I never go to any of them because of the parking fees.
