I’ll miss you!!
And… I’m back in D.C.!! I was supposed to fly to the closer in D.C. airport via Chicago, but after hearing all the Chicago flights were getting cancelled due to snow, I was luckily able to switch to a direct flight to the farther out D.C. airport instead. SWEET!!! Got home earlier than planned, too! :) Mental note: Don’t book flights that connect through Chicago in January!
Anyway, my last day in southern California yesterday was wonderful! The theme of the day was: ROAD TRIP!!
My cousin Willow and I headed to Ventura for the day, a beach town about 45 minutes from where we were staying.
This whole week we’ve been trying to pack lunches and snacks to save money. Today’s lunch was turkey, tomato, and spinach sandwiches on whole wheat along with lots of afternoon snacks :) I’m the type of person that needs to eat like every hour, so bringing food along is always a must! Anyone else??
It was a BEAUTIFUL drive!
We enjoyed spectacular views of the mountains and orange trees :)
We stopped at one of the orchards along the way for provisions, obviously. I love little places like this!
It was purdy :)
A little while later, we arrived in Ventura!
We ended up not doing the kayaking because we found the best biking trail ever that went all along the ocean for miles! It was just to the right of these train tracks — we couldn’t have had a better view. The whole time we were like… ”Is this for real!?”
We spent the afternoon enjoying the scenery, fresh air, and exercise.
Yep… totally biked in flip flops. What of it? :)
Willow and I biked back to the pier in town just in time to check out the sunset, since we’re obsessed with sunsets over the beach ;)
I’m really going to miss seeing this!
And so my adventure ends. I hope you’ve enjoyed coming along with me via the blog! I have a trips to New York City (seeing friends) and to Seattle (visiting grad schools and a friend) planned for later this month, so you have some more fun travel-related posts to look forward to :) Regularly scheduled blogging will continue in the meantime! Stay tuned for new exercise moves and more fun recipes. :)
Classes start up again on Monday — if you’re new to the blog, I’m currently taking prerequisites for Masters in Dietetics programs, and applying to start somewhere in the fall. I’m signed up for Human Nutrition and Anatomy & Physiology this semester. Good times! I’ll be heading back to work on Monday, too. (I’m a writer/editor for a company here in Virginia.) My school schedule is a little more open this semester so I’m going to be increasing my hours and working on site more often as opposed to just from home — gotta make that moolah!
I’m off to scrounge around for some food and reorganize my life! Ta-ta!
p.s. Totally went through security in the Los Angeles airport RIGHT next to Keri Russell, aka Felicity!!! She is pretty :) And tiny! So excited to have gotten in a celeb sighting ;)
