My view of Cali


I had ideas of traveling a day early and staying a day late while on my mini-vacay to Orange County Cali in January for that amazing Sylelab workshop. I envisioned walking along the beach, reading books while the sun beat down on my face, sipping cold Lemonade and taking in some much needed Vitamin D from those rays! Doesn’t that sound perfect? And it sounded even more perfect after the blizzard-mania that we had just before Christmas…..

WELLLLLL…if any of you watched the news in January you heard stories upon stories of the massive amount of abnormal rain and winds that southern California was getting. Mudslides, hurricane-type-winds, street flooding, umbrella-whipping-through-the-sky kind of weather… And, of course, this was at the brink of my trip. Awesome! Needless to say I still had an amazing Emily-only vacay with many glasses of wine and much relaxing at the ever-so-wonderful La Casa Del Camino hotel in Laguna Beach ! :)

Although, the first day I got there I was able to see the sun peaking through the clouds for about 30 minutes just as the sun was setting so I immediately strapped on my camera and took a walk along Laguna beach and explored the amazing artist community!
