Laguna – Day One (Getting There)

Palm Trees, Laguna Beach, California

I had a great vacation last week in Laguna Beach California. It was a relaxing, long, four-day weekend that consisted mainly of a wedding, parties, and lying on the beach.

It actually Started on Thursday evening after taking off from work a little bit early. Sabrina picked me up and we headed out to Pasquini’s where I ate a pizza and we split a couple of pitchers of sangria. Afterward she helped me pack for my trip and we had a great conversation about everything along with a couple more drinks.

Getting up at six in da mo’nin’ was made difficult by the previous nights gin and juice. It also caused me to fail packing my swimsuit (which I keep in the trunk of my car because you never know when you’re going to get the chance for a dip). This did not end up being a problem as Laguna happens to be filled to the brim with stores that sell bright yellow speedos in my size. After arriving in Laguna we checked into our hotel (Capri Laguna Inn has great rates and ocean views but is a bit run down) and headed straight to the 1,000 steps beach. We then walked around town and settled on shrimp and calamari tacos for lunch. Afterward, I drove a few people to another beach for the wedding rehearsal. While everyone else packed into the limo for the rehearsal dinner I went back into town, spent fifteen minutes swimming in the ocean, watched the sunset, did some exploring along the rocks, and then found my mom and we went out for chicken bbq pizza. I know I’ve got a good vacation going when it starts with having pizza two nights in a row. After dinner I met up with a bunch of friends on the rooftop of La Casa Del Comina and we partied till late into the night.
