Wander: Crystal Cove

6/11/2014

When Ian travels for work, I'll sometimes pack up our dog and head to Newport Beach to stay with my parents for a few days. It's a much shorter commute and it's fun to have wine with them after work and walk Balboa Island in the morning. Since our days in Southern California are dwindling, my parents and I decided to take advantage of a warm summer night by heading down to Crystal Cove for Mai Tais at The Beachcomber and a picnic dinner on the beach. Moving up to San Francisco will be bittersweet and I know that'll look back on that night and smile, thinking about when I was 28, newly-married, and about to embark upon a big adventure.
