During our road trip, Mann and I talked about how we always want to travel to other far away places and never actually explore places nearby. We then agreed to each other that we would start finding things to do or places to go in our city or within a 1~ hour driving radius. And that was it! Read more
Two years ago we came here for our engagement photo shoot. After the rain has made everything green in SoCal, I’ve thought this place must be full of these yellow mustard flowers. And it is! There are also many orange trees that blossom and produce such a nice pleasant smell that reminds me of the very first place I called home, where we used to have a lot orange trees and several different kinds of fruit trees. The home that gave us so many good memories and the two worst memories in our family lives. Read more
Eureka, a Greek word means “I have found it!”, is a city in northern California. The city is rich in history, you could read more about it here. Eureka is definitely the word you would say when you get there because it is like a hidden gem that is amazingly full of interesting colorful old style houses and buildings. When we were there, we just couldn’t get enough of it. Here are some proofs:) Read more
Glass beach is located in Fort Bragg, California. It’s about 3-hour drive up north of San Francisco. The shore is covered with small colored stones (see pictures) called beach glass. Beach glass came from trash such as glass and other appliances that were dumped on those sites (now known as glass beaches) many years ago. Over the years, those pieces of trash were broken down into beautiful little stones by waves.
Having heard a lot about it and seen beautiful pictures of it, we decided to change our plan and drove off for 5 hours to see it. It was definitely not a worthwhile experience (maybe it would be if we went there years ago when there were more beach glass). The beach itself also smells fishy. However, if you happen to be near the area, you should definitely go check out and judge for yourself :). It’s free and parking is also free and there’s plenty!
Today was the opposite of yesterday. We did a lot of walking and hiking. I felt tired right after our swimming in Sand Harbor. But I love Lake Tahoe. It’s too bad that we didn’t get to go to Heavenly. We will come back for sure :). Here’re some highlight pictures of our day: Read more
