Afternoon Out at Crystal Cove

DSC00342Hey there friends– When our kids were here a couple weeks ago, we whiled away a wintery afternoon at Crystal Cove.  Wandered down the beach a ways and then snagged a corner window table at the Beach Comber Cafe, tucked into a cozy 1930’s cottage on the beach.

We read our way through  the little state park information shack– with the history of Crystal Cove– and watched the sea gulls stand guard along the shore.

Our little lunch was delish– from the Asian calamari to the s’mores sundae and the hot tea in a chubby little pot.

As we hiked back towards the car, the sun was nearly set over the Pacific.

Thanks Ani & Brian– Larry and I can never have too many walking/eating/talking days out with you two!

  1. such beautiful pictures! with your new camera? My husband and I had our first date at Crystal cove… then we dated for a good two years either meeting there or at corona del mar (a little north of there) every week. Then, he proposed to me at at a spot where the cottages end…. special place for us!
