I’ve only been to California twice in my life, so I was ECSTATIC to visit again this February for the last leg of my book tour. I spent 4 days in San Fran, 3 days in San Diego, and 1 day in Newport Beach.
And 8 days on the west coast wasn’t nearly long enough!
While I felt like I worked the whole trip, looking back– we actually did a TON. Kevin was able to join me on the trip, so we found adventures and explored Cali paradise as much as we could.
We had family meet us and we all went to the San Diego zoo, we woke up early to see the golden gate bridge at sunrise, we spent a day at Alcatraz, we drove up and down the coast one day, we visited our friends in Los Altos, and we celebrated Valentine’s Day. All that and I held 4 book signings and met some of the best people at each. Can I go back? ♥
And what made it all even better? It was only 15 degrees back home on the east coast. Now is that lucky timing or what?!
Love this shot. Set on my tripod with the slowest shutter speed in the world.
Doesn’t the water look like silk?! ↓
Jalapeño basil pineapple marg. Is that a cuppa paradise or what?
California readers, consider me eternally jealous!
