It was another beautiful Spring day in Cali today (3/23/17) Ahh yes, my favorite season once again. A slight cool breeze dusted off the sandy cliff sides of San Clemente State Beach and threatened not only my eyes but my amateur friend’s photography skills as well. She tried haha and actually in essence produced a nice effect without meaning to.
Wild flowers are blooming! Painted upon the green grassy hills and mountains are dashes of yellows, purples, pinks and oranges. In full bloom by Carlsbad, all the way up along the 5 freeway and the coast! A great time for that road trip you’ve been putting off as those same small mountains have been dry, brown chaparral for as long as I can remember until this year’s rainfall.
If you happen to be heading up to San Clemente, be sure to stop by the state beach and find its many trails (they have a coast boardwalk trail too!). For food, Pierside Kitchen and Bar off of Avenida Victoria five minutes away; a delicious chic spot to stop for a light bite and some champagne with a view. I ordered the grilled cheese with tomato bisque yummm! It’s Thursday and apparently they do drinking competitions around 2; not sure if it’s every Thursday, but be warned… they’ll move you off the bar! Otherwise it is a very quaint place to enjoy brunch! Still in town? Check out some Nitro Infused Ice cream at Kaylani Coffee & Nitro Infused Ice Cream, really interesting consistency with great flavors and topping choices as well. So go see some nature! Happy Spring! ❤
