Since my camera’s disk decided not to cooperate with me this week, I thought it presented a perfect opportunity. I finally got around to editing some photos that had been sitting around for far too long without sharing.

Back in July, I took a short weekend trip out to California to visit a friend I hadn’t seen in three years. I’m sure it’s hard to tell the difference between the two of us in this picture, because we’re practically twins. Only she’s about fourteen hundred inches taller. And black. And drop dead gorgeous.

We were both having a rough couple of months, and this trip would be our opportunity to relax, get a little sun, and see the sights. No agendas to meet, no appointments to keep, just relaxation and going with the flow.

We had a few hiccups getting out to La Jolla, mostly because our first hotel unfortunately fell through at the last minute. We were left with few options in the eleventh hour, but we found one that worked. And even though neither of us are golfers, we figured hey, we don’t need to golf to enjoy The Lodge at Torrey Pines.

The wine was still just as tasty =)

The hike to the Torrey Pines State Beach was wonderful. At first it looked as though the sky would remain cloudy.

But after only a few minutes, the sun came out. Big-time. Thank God for the wind! It was easy, breezy and beautiful.

The hiking trail led us to the beach, where we climbed onto a large rock and watched the ocean spray. This was only the second time my feet have ever touched the Pacific.

Sometimes I am really amazed at how good my little digital camera can really be (in perfect weather of course).

I’m so glad I finally got around to editing these pictures. They feel like ages ago, but they are so relaxing to look at! For more, check out my full album here.

Have a great week folks!
