California Adventure - The End

Our last day there we toured the west coast just Andrew and I. We stopped at Bodega and saw the church where the Alfred Hitchcock classic, The Birds, was filmed on our way to Bodega Bay. This church would be a good choice for our wedding, right? Destination wedding anyone??
It was seriously the most beautiful day ever. The sky was clear and sunny but it wasn't too hot. I was in jeans and was super comfortable. Here are some coast photos we took during our excursion.
Northern California beaches are weird to me because they aren't typical beaches. As you can see, there are a ton of rocks! And you have to be really careful with rip currents/tides if you decide to go surfing or swimming in the water. We just stayed on the land and in the sand and let the surfers enjoy the ocean.
How pretty is this photo though? I kind of want to frame it for a hallway or something. I really love the rock formation in the background, the wispy hint of the cloud, and the cresting wave. It just looks really pretty! I could stand and listen to an ocean forever.
What's really nice is you can drive the coast and then get out at overlooks where you can have some amazing views.
 Andrew took this photo. This is another one I'd be interested in framing and hanging up somewhere.
Lastly, just a few more photos of one of the vineyards we went to. These last two were taken a Chateau St. Jean. Is this not the proudest palm tree out there??
 And the final photo of us in the garden at Chateau St. Jean.
Seriously, if you have never been to California I highly recommend going! We had a blast and are so grateful that my family let us crash with them.

  1. Wow, sounds like you had a great time! Your posts were not boring at all. :)

    I'm in New England so I'm used to rock covered beaches, but the California ones are much prettier to me. I really liked the redwood and Golden Gate bride pics too. :)
