Dana Point, California…at least for the next 71 days. Yikes! When I read that Design Mom was going to have a link up called “Love Where You Live” I knew I had to participate. Right now and for the last almost three years, we have called Dana Point home. I have so many pictures of our beautiful beaches on sunny days, but I wanted this post to be authentic. So on Saturday afternoon after baseball we went to the Dana Point Harbor. Even on a gray day like it was on Saturday, there is so much going on.
The Ocean Institute offers classes and tours of the Tall Ship Pilgrim. Docents are dressed in period costume as they greet and guide you back in time. Children from all over Southern California take field trips to the Ocean Institute.
Stand up paddle has become hugely popular the last few years. They rent boards and paddles by the hour and “baby beach” (as the locals call it) was the perfect place to get the hang of it before heading out to the open water.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many versions of license plates we have seen that incorporate surf. I wish I had kept a log… We will miss a lot about California when we move back east, but I think for me…it will be the sunsets. Even on the gloomiest of days…somehow the sun seems to make an appearance just as it sets.
