One of my favorite adventures during our California road trip was our last-minute stop at the beach in Del Mar to see the sunset. We had just spent a few hours at the San Diego County Fair, my first time back since I was little and Scott's very first time. Since we were feeling pretty beat from an afternoon in the sun, we decided to head out early and drive down to the beach. We had a little issue finding parking, but once we caved and pulled into a paid lot we parked the car, grabbed our beach blanket and headed toward the ocean waves.
As you can, the see view from the beach was breathtaking, absolutely breathtaking.
To be here and to experience this amazing view with my love felt so, so special. In October we'll have been together for nine years, and to be quite honest -- he still gives me butterflies.
It felt almost magical to watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. We saw a few surfers enjoying their last swell of the day, along with the most darling kids splashing in the water as the waves pulled back and forth, back and forth. After taking a little walk along the beach, we found a spot in the sand and rolled out our blanket to watch the very last of the sun set over the oceans waves. I had always heard that Del Mar was beautiful, in fact, I spent a good portion of my first few years of life living along the Pacific Coast and visiting Del Mar often. While I was too young to remember any of this, I never doubted anyone's comments about the beautiful beaches and charming town square in this area, but to finally be able to see all of this with my own, matured eyes was definitely special. Del Mar, you've won our hearts and we'll be back for you soon!
