We're finally home! Sorry for my long absence but we've been on a family vacation to Newport Beach. It was a blast hanging out with family (like last year) & I have a ton of pictures to share!
The beach down by our hotel is called Crystal Cove. It's gorgeous & just a couple block away. The first day we went the tide was low & we were able to explore the rocks. We saw all sorts of cool sea life & tons of star fish (which seriously freak me out).
The second beach day we went the tide was higher & the day was warmer so we were able to enjoy a classic beach day: sandcastles, frisbee, & some of us even braved the water.
