Our Jalama Adventure

About a month or so ago ( I know I am super behind on posts!) we went on our annual trip to Jalama, CA. It was a wild weekend with 60 mph winds, sand storms and broken tents. But we always try to make the best of things right? Here are some pictures from our weekend in Jalama.

Jalama Trip

Here are some pictures from our trip to Jalama Beach. It was a fun weekend. We were glad to get away for just a few short days; to take a break from work and wedding planning. It’s nice to clear your head once in awhile. Funny thing though… we hit a huge rain storm and 40mph winds! We spent most of the time inside the Winnebago with our friends, but any time spent with friends is time well spent! The weather wasn’t on our side, but the waves sure were!

Here is a picture of our camp, during a spot of sunshine…the poles we used to hold up the awning were bent in half by morning time (the wind was that STRONG). How exciting!

Dany T. (one of my lovely bridesmaids) and I were the only ladies on the trip. Making dinner for a bunch of hungry guys is quite a task. They’ve got it too good.

Our Fishing Trip

Danny and I went fishing with my Grandparents at 6:30AM yesterday. We launched the boat in Dana Point and headed north towards Laguna and Newport.  We snacked on edamame, fresh strawberries and oatmeal cookies while Grandpa gave us lessons on tying polymer and cinch  knots for our hooks. I loved taking pictures of the beautiful coastline and spending time with my family. P.S. Grandma, Danny and I caught about eight mackerel and released them (yucky eats). Grandpa…the fish whisperer of fishermen, caught two beautiful Sea Bass. Good job Grandpops!

Laguna Beach
This is one of my favorite beaches called “Thousand Step” in Laguna Beach. This early morning picture doesn’t do it justice — it’s a beautiful secluded cove with clear water and a soft white sand. The trek to get here is a little tiring (hence the name) but it’s well worth it!

One of Grandpa’s Sea Bass! He never fails to catch a fish!
