The Idea

I think a normal day in California, the beaches, the mountains, the sunny days, the cold days, and the amazing people. I ask other people what they think and they talk about the great road trips down the coast and the amazing mountains in Big Bear. We put our thought together and realize how lucky we are to live in such a great place. We came up with a final decision that California is the best place to live.

Glow Stick Adventures

The other night, my friends and I went down to Huntington Harbour with about 5 packs of glow sticks and a camera. Not only did we have a great time, but the pictures turned out amazing. We sat on the beach and as soon as the sun set, we broke out the glow sticks and started the fun. We discovered that the vibrant lights of the glow sticks and any slight movement would put a really cool blur to the picture. With that, we would have one person constantly taking pictures as we danced and jumped around with each other. The results were so fun! If you are looking for a fun night at the beach with a good group of friends, I highly recommend you give this a try!

Newport Bay

Newport Beach Bay in southern California is a great place to hang out with friends and family. You can rent canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards. My favorite is paddle boarding. It is so easy and so fun. Many people can do it even if your on the older side. The water is so nice and you can go around all the amazing houses. Sometimes you will even see seals and some fish. It is so fun seeing all of the boats pass by you. There is one place called Pirates Cove where you can go night paddle boarding.  Trust me it’s a great thing to do on a warm summer day. I hope you and your family and friends can try it out some time!

California Dreaming

Yosemite National Park

I never realized how lucky we are to live in California. We have everything we could ask for. We have amazing  beaches, mountains, forests, and great weather. We live five minutes away from the beach, two hours from the mountains, and six hours away from national parks like Yosemite.


I didn’t realize this until I was sitting at the beach, laying out in the middle of december, still getting sunburnt. I can can go tan in december. I can go on a road trip down yosemite and camp and enjoy nature.I can go to Big Bear Mountain and play in the snow. I can do anything really, anytime I want!

Then I realized I am the luckiest girl in the world. I can surf and play beach volleyball whenever I want. I have the best friends anyone could ask for. I can visit the beautiful beaches like Huntington, Seal Beach, Thousand Steps, Crystal Cove, and San Diego.

So now I try to not take things for granted. I live life to the fullest and do the things I dream of doing. For example traveling, bridge jumping, and sky diving. I am thankful for everything I have. And try to do new things that will push me and make me a better person.
