Northwest Open Space

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!

The home that gave us so many good memories and the two worst memories in our family lives. Read more

Road Trip: Glass Beach + Drive-Thru Tree

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.

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!
