More touristing!

Paradise Cove is a lovely beach spot in Malibu. Surrounded by cliffs and complete with a pier, volleyball nets, lounge chairs, umbrellas, and a mediocre-but-picturesque restaurant, it’s a good way to get all of your California surf culture clichés in at once.

I recommend getting there an hour or two before sunset, getting some drinks and maybe a bite or two at the café, then taking a long stroll along the beach as the night turns pink and purple. Watch the pelicans fishing and get some sand between your toes.

    That is a fun-looking watermelon drink though.

        That, I think, makes it even better.

    Awww Paradise Cove! I wanted to go there while we were there but had spent more time at Surfrider than anticipated that we didn’t have time to head further up the coast. The few times I have been there, I saw dolphins out in the distance frolicking in the ocean. It was then that I truly realized how enchanting California is. : )

    As usual, I love your photos and hope you are enjoying your time back home in the sun. I miss CA every day.

      Awesome! We missed the dolphins that day, though.

      Thanks, and let’s get together when I’m in Paris the 3rd week of September, yeah?

    It really does seem like paradise! I’ve never been to Cali, but that is exactly what it looks like in my dreams.

      I know! Even though I’ve lived here basically my whole life, I sometimes go to Paradise Cove to remind myself that hey… I live here!
