West Coast Road Trippin

October 11 , 2011 by: Hong Favorites, Inspiration, Places

I know I promised to wrap up Oh Happy Day with a part Deux, but I thought I would post some summer vacation photos in between. Since Thuha’s destination wedding was in Ojai, CA our little family decided to take a road trip. And down the California Coast we went along with Phantom Planet’s “California” as our theme song.

We camped out one night in the Redwoods National Forest and spent the next day exploring.

The mid morning light was breathtakingly beautiful as it fell through the trees.

Burying your feet in Carmel’s stark white sand is a must do in one’s lifetime.

A vacation wouldn’t be a vacation without a self portrait. Here’s my guy and I headed towards Los Padres National Forest.

One of the cutest beach communities. If you are ever in Cayucos, this little restaurant is a must!

And that wraps up the first half of our summer vacation!

I’ll delight you with more details on Thuha’s big bash tomorrow!


  • What a treat to have two days of seasonsforcake! Tell me more tell me more!

  • You’ve gotta love a restaurant that has a menu including chicken strips AND oysters on the half shell. Duckie’s looks great. Nothing beats Carmel for me, rain or shine. It’s one of my favorite places to escape, if only in my mind mostly. Thanks for opportunity to get away 🙂

  • Baked macaroni and cheese is a classic and it's even better with that crispy cheese crust right from the oven. #bakedmacaroniandcheese #macaroniandcheesebaked #macandcheese #bakedmacandcheese
